Climate change could trigger strong sea level rise

About 15,000 years ago, the ocean around Antarctica has seen an abrupt sea level rise of several meters. It could happen again. An international...

Dino-killing crater shows clues about Ice Age sea level

The massive underwater crater left by the asteroid that exterminated the dinosaurs has provided new evidence that sea levels were much lower during the...

How far did sea level rise? It’s no walk-on-the-beach calculation

Figuring out how far sea level rose during past warm periods in Earth's history starts with a walk on the beach, a keen eye...

Volcanic eruption masked acceleration in sea level rise

The cataclysmic 1991 eruption of Mount Pinatubo in the Philippines masked the full impact of greenhouse gases on accelerating sea level rise, according to...

Climate change already accelerating sea level rise, study finds

Greenhouse gases are already having an accelerating effect on sea level rise, but the impact has so far been masked by the cataclysmic 1991...

How much does groundwater contribute to sea level rise?

Groundwater extraction and other land water contribute about three times less to sea level rise than previous estimates, according to a new study published...

The days are getting longer: Rotation of Earth’s core holds a...

Scientists are studying past changes in sea level in order to make accurate future predictions of this consequence of climate change, and they're looking...

Burning remaining fossil fuel could cause 60-meter sea level rise

New work from an international team including Carnegie's Ken Caldeira demonstrates that the planet's remaining fossil fuel resources would be sufficient to melt nearly...

New data changes ideas about sea level and coastal uplift along...

A new GSA Bulletin study shows that uplift rates across the Pacific Coast of the USA and northern Mexico have been overestimated by an...

Study finds geoengineering technique would not stop sea level rise

Albedo modification, an emerging technology with the potential to offset some aspects of climate change, shouldn't be counted on as a short-term solution to...

Risk of major sea level rise in Northern Europe

Global warming leads to the ice sheets on land melting and flowing into the sea, which consequently rises. New calculations by researchers from the...

International team maps nearly 200,000 global glaciers in quest for sea...

An international team led by glaciologists from the University of Colorado Boulder and Trent University in Ontario, Canada has completed the first mapping of...

What the Past Tells Us About Modern Sea-Level Rise

Researchers from the University of Southampton and the Australian National University report that sea-level rise since the industrial revolution has been fast by natural...

Earlier Peak for Spain’s Glaciers

The last glacial maximum was a time when Earth's far northern and far southern latitudes were largely covered in ice sheets and sea levels...

Earth’s Mantle Affects Long-Term Sea-Level Rise Estimates

From Virginia to Florida, there is a prehistoric shoreline that, in some parts, rests more than 280 feet above modern sea level. The shoreline...

Global Sea Level Likely to Rise as Much as 70 Feet...

Even if humankind manages to limit global warming to 2 degrees C (3.6 degrees F), as the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change recommends, future...

Sea level rise less from Greenland, more from Antarctica, than expected...

During the last prolonged warm spell on Earth, the oceans were at least four meters - and possibly as much as 6.5 meters, or...

Melting ice on Arctic islands a major player in sea level...

Melting glaciers and ice caps on Canadian Arctic islands play a much greater role in sea level rise than scientists previously thought, according to...
