Sea levels may rise by as much as one meter before the end of this century, according to new predictions. Melting glaciers may contribute more to the rise in sea levels than scientists have previously realized.
A new estimate puts maximum global sea level rise from the collapse of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet at 10.5 feet (3.2 meters)--not the 16 feet (five meters) or more predicted in the past. [More] ... Read Post
Scientists are reporting new results from an investigation into Antarctica's potential contribution to sea level rise. Thinning ice in West Antarctica is currently contributing nearly 10 per cent of global sea level rise, and scient... Read Post
Anthropogenic climate change leads to melting glaciers and rising sea level. Between 1902 and 2009, melting glaciers contributed 11 cm to sea level rise. They were therefore the most important cause of sea level rise. Scientists hav... Read Post
