South China Sea’s sea level has risen ever since 1900, per researchers. The level has reportedly risen by 150mm. The study was conducted by researchers under the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) as well as some other institutions in the country.
The unforeseen rapid rise in sea level and the US coasts could experience an extra foot of water by 2050, per a statement from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
With temperatures reaching 38° Celsius north of the Arctic Circle in June, and Arctic sea ice melting faster than most climate models predicted, the Clean Arctic Alliance is calling on world leaders to take urgent action to curb the warming of the Arctic region.
The Arctic’s largest ice shelf has detached a 113 km2 area. The last few years have been incredibly warm in northeast Greenland and this appears to be a progressive disintegration.
A new study has predicted that future global warming will lead to an increase in ‘extreme sea levels’, with consequent flood risks to coastal infrastructure and human populations.
US East and Gulf Coast military installations are at risk of losing land—where vital training and testing grounds, infrastructure and housing now exists—as sea level rise moves the high tide line inland in decades to come, according to a Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) analysis released today.
Sea levels could rise by at least six metres (20 feet) in the long term, swamping coasts from Florida to Bangladesh, even if governments achieve their goals for curbing global warming, according to a study published on Thursday.
