Latest Sea level Stories
Sea levels could be rising faster than scientists originally believed, thanks to the warming subsurface waters that could cause more rapid melting of ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica.
A consistent link exists between changes in global mean surface temperature and sea level, resulting in a greater rate of sea-level rise along the US Atlantic coast than that of the past 2,000 years.
Official media said Friday that Cuban scientists have calculated that median sea levels around the Caribbean nation will rise above 30 inches by the end of the century due to global climate change.
A new survey of barrier islands published earlier this spring offers the most thorough assessment to date of the thousands of small islands that hug the coasts of the world's landmasses.
A Spanish research team has for the first time mapped the geomorphological features of the Ebro river basin between five and six million years ago.
ESA's CryoSat team working on the Greenland ice sheet has been honored with a visit from a Dutch delegation including HRH Prince of Orange.
Salinity â€“ the concentration of salt â€“ on the ocean surface is a key missing puzzle piece in satellite studies of Earth that will improve our understanding of how the ocean and atmosphere are coupled and work in tandem to affect our climate.
According to an international report, climate change in the Arctic could raise world sea levels to 5 feet by 2100.
According to a new study, melting glaciers and ice caps on Canadian Arctic islands play a much greater role in sea level rise than scientists previously thought.
New forecasts on rising sea levels suggest that New York will be a big loser, while some regions, including those closer to polar regions, will win big.
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...
