Ocean Science Fact: Sea level rise is not only due to melting glaciers

Did you know that sea level rise is not only due to melting glaciers? About one third of today’s sea level rise is due to thermal expansion of the ocean – as the ocean warms, water expands and takes up more space. The other two-thirds come from shrinking…

Ocean Science Fact: Sea level rise will increase two to seven times this century

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…
