Ocean Science Fact: L'élévation du niveau de la mer sera multipliée par deux à sept fois au cours du siècle.

Global mean sea level (GMSL) is rising and the phenomenon is accelerating. Indeed, last century (1901-2000) GMSL rose by 15cm, whereas predictions for the 2011-2100 period are an additional 30 cm to 110 cm, depending on the area and the carbon emission scenaria. In cause since 1970, sea-level rise is mainly due to anthropogenic forcing.
