Latest Sea level Stories
$1.03 million grant from Defense Department program to fund Florida State University study.
At an Oxford University climate conference, experts announced that sea levels across the globe will almost inevitably rise more than 6 feet.
Since May 2009, the tropical Pacific Ocean has switched from a cool pattern of ocean circulation known as La NiÃ±a to her warmer sibling, El NiÃ±o.
Scientists are taking a more in-depth view of how climate change could affect Antarcticaâ€™s ice, and how even a small change in temperature could lead to a global rise in sea levels.
According to a study that might help predict rising sea levels linked to climate change, scientists are surprised at how fast coastal ice in Antarctica and Greenland is thinning.
Researchers from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution spent last month trying to determine if warmer oceanic waters were seeping into the regions surrounding Greenland.
A new study released on Wednesday showed the Greenland icesheet responded to global warming over the past 10,000 years more quickly than thought.
Scientists are trying to determine what occurred in Greenlandâ€™s history to cause its glaciers to rapidly melt, and what implications it might have for the earthâ€™s future in light of looming global warming.
Persistent winds and a weakened current in the Mid-Atlantic contributed to higher than normal sea levels along the Eastern Seaboard in June and July.
The sea levels all around the world are rising. Current sea-level rise has the potential to affect human populations and the natural environment. Two key factors have contributed to the observed sea level rise. The first is thermal expansion: as the ocean water warms, it expands. The second is from the influence of land-based ice because of increased melting. The major store of water on land is found in the glaciers and the ice sheets. The rising of sea levels is one of several lines of...
A radar altimeter measures altitude above the terrain beneath an aircraft as opposed to a barometric altimeter which provides the distance above a pre-determined datum, usually sea level. Radar is the underpinning principle of the system. Radio waves that are reflected back from the ground are timed in order to calculate speed, distance, and time which are related to the each other and can be used to calculate the distance from one point to another. Lloyd Espenschied invented the radar...
