Many US coastal communities already struggle with flooding at high tides, a problem that will become "chronic" in the coming 15 years due to global warming, scientists said Wednesday.
A new study has revealed that dinosaurs were killed by a series of changes in the climate and environment such as changing sea levels, varying temperatures and extensive volcanic activity that ultimately created a perfect storm.
The burning question whether sea level rise is accelerating can only be answered with a degree of certainty by 2030, an international team of scientists has claimed.
Researchers have said that the if a small area of ice on East Antarctica shore melts it could lead to 10 foot rise in sea-levels.
Sea levels this year posted a record high, making low-lying coastal populations ever more vulnerable to extreme weather like super-storm Haiyan, the UN said today.
A leaked draft of a landmark climate change report prepared for the UN has revealed that sea levels of the world could increase more than 80 centimetres this century.
Global sea levels will rise about 2.3 meters, or more than seven feet, over the next several thousand years for every degree (Celsius) the planet warms, according to a new study.
Sea levels have already risen on average about 18 centimeters since 1900.
Sea levels will rise by 60 cm by the end of the century and by another 180 cm over the next four centuries.
UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon has warned that rising sea levels could put coastal cities from Kolkata to Miami at "serious" risk.
The glacier is currently sliding into the sea at a clip of four km a year.
Alaska glaciers have been losing mass more rapidly since the mid-1990s.
The rise in sea levels due to global warming could make coastal flooding much more common.
Humans-induced greenhouse gases are increasing sea levels in parts of the Indian Ocean.
Quickening ice loss in W Antarctica will likely contribute heavily to a projected sea level rise of up to 1.4m by 2100, as per a major sc report released Tuesday.
A scientist from Iowa State University in the US has developed a lab machine to study glacial sliding related to rising sea levels.
Reports indicate that sea levels on Australia’s eastern seaboard are rising at less than a third of the rate that the New South Wales Government is predicting.
