Latest Future sea level Stories
The glaciers along Western Antarctica are among the fastest melting in the world and a new study from researchers at the University of California, Irvine has found that the rate of melt there has tripled in the past ten years.
Five new NASA airborne field campaigns, including one managed by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California, will take to the skies starting in 2015 to investigate how long-range air pollution, warming ocean waters and fires in Africa affect our climate.
Current changes in the ocean around Antarctica are disturbingly close to conditions 14,000 years ago that new research shows may have led to the rapid melting of Antarctic ice and an abrupt 3-4 meter rise in global sea level.
Scientists have developed a new method for revealing how sea levels might rise around the world throughout the 21st century to address the controversial topic of whether the rate of sea level rise is currently increasing.
Previous instances of rapid thinning of Pine Island Glacier suggests that current ice loss in the Antarctic could continue for several more decades, a team of geologists from the US, UK and Germany report in this week’s edition of the journal Science.
Researchers writing in the journal Nature say that ocean warming could be causing a four-fold increase in ice loss on the Greenland Ice Sheet.
An intriguing link between sea ice conditions and the melting rate of Totten Glacier, the glacier in East Antarctica that discharges the most ice into the ocean, has been found by a NASA-led study.
Two professors with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) have taken on a new approach to assess future sea level rise due to the world’s melting ice sheets.
On December 6, NOAA will release a technical report that estimates global mean sea level rise over the next century based on a comprehensive synthesis of existing scientific literature.
