Latest Sea level Stories
Did a catastrophic flood of biblical proportions drown the shores of the Black Sea 9,500 years ago, wiping out early Neolithic settlements around its perimeter?
A U.S. study suggests North Carolina is one of the states that will be hurt the most by a substantial rise in sea-level. Lead author Jim Titus of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency said the sandy shore of the mid-Atlantic will erode faster than other coastal areas.
A new study suggests that Antarctica is rising in temperature, despite previous claims it was the only continent not suffering from global warming.
The Environmental Protection Agency said on Friday rising seal levels on the United States' mid-Atlantic coast are happening faster than the global average because of global warming.
Increased rainfall on the Antarctic Peninsula is rapidly melting glaciers like the Sheldon, which has recoiled 1.2 miles in 20 years and is raising world sea levels, a leading expert announced.
New research indicates that the ocean could rise in the next 100 years to a meter higher than the current sea level â€“ which is three times higher than predictions from the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, IPCC.
In an effort to seek clues to world ocean level rises in one of the most inaccessible places on earth, scientists are sending a yellow robot submarine to dive under an ice shelf in Antarctica.
Satellites that were designed to measure sea level over the world's oceans can serve a valuable purpose over land, a new study has found.
Recently-reported NASA satellite data shows that Greenland, Antarctica and Alaska have shed more than 2 trillion tons of land ice since 2003.
As ice melts away from Antarctica, parts of the continental bedrock are rising in response -- and other parts are sinking, scientists have discovered.
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...
- The act of sweetening by admixture of some saccharine substance.
