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 scenario. In cause since 1970, sea-level rise is mainly due to anthropogenic forcing.
