Rising sea levels glaciers

  • Global Ice Volume: Glacier Measurements Shed Light On Sea Level Rise ...

    Compared with the potential sea level rise from the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets, the volume of land-based glaciers is relatively small, Huss said. For example, completely melting the Greenland ice sheet would add 23 feet (7 meters) to the ...


  • Sea Level Rising Faster Than Average In the U.S. Northeast

    That's not the only factor that affects local sea level. Another is the fact that some land is rising, still rebounding from the disappearance of the glaciers thousands of years ago, while other land is sinking. That's one reason Norfolk's projected ...


  • Southern Ocean warming impact on Antarctic Ice Sheet and global sea level rise

    Climate change is causing the southern ocean to warm and freshen which will melt ice shelves and glacier tongues affecting glacier discharge and producing Antarctic Ice Sheet mass loss and global sea level rise. A new study shows that small temperature ...


  • New research states no hope in preventing sea level rise

    Advertisement. More precise predictions of sea level changes published in the journal Environmental Research Letters, the Institute of Physics journal, on October 1, 2012, are the first to predict sea levels rise due to climate change that included all ...


  • Why Sea Levels Fell, Only to Rise Again

    Sea level rise is primarily driven by higher temperatures, which cause water to expand and melt glaciers and land ice around the world, increasing ocean volume, Boening said.


  • New satellite data reveals sea-level rise

    Scientists say sea-level rises are the result of the expansion of water due to rising temperatures, melting of glaciers and the melting of polar ice sheets. Annual mean global sea-level changes 1992-2010 (ESA). Annual mean global sea-level changes ...


  • Research observes sea level change with new method

    A University of Toronto researcher stressed a need yesterday for examining the West Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets when determining global sea level rise. Professor Carling Hay is working on a project with colleagues from the University, Harvard ...


  • 190m tonnes of ice a day has sea rising 1mm a year

    Although parts of East Antarctica are growing, glaciers in West Antarctica are melting faster, leading to a net loss of ice across the continent, according to the study published in the journal Nature.


  • New science: SEAS WILL RISE due to CO2 ... but not for centuries

    As most Reg readers know, the various land-based ice sheets and glaciers of planet Earth today hold enormous amounts of water.


  • Discovering an 'unknown' risk to sea level rise

    This could mean, in principle anyway, that the extra CO2 pumped into the atmosphere by the burning of fossil fuels could make glaciers fragment more easily, and not just melt more quickly. And that could accelerate sea level rise, endangering people ...


  • Irreversible Sea Level Rise to Continue for Thousands of Years

    The researchers found in all of their scenarios that the Greenland ice sheet was responsible for more than half of the sea level rise seen, with thermal expansion of the oceans as the second highest contributor, and the glaciers and ice making up only ...


  • Why Greenland's record ice-melt matters

    The second largest block of freshwater ice on the planet melted more this year than ever before, contributing to rising sea levels and even possibly the weather. Tom Clarke sets sail to check it out. Please wait while this video loads. If it doesn't ...


  • 'Irreversible' warming to raise sea levels

    Writing in the journal Environmental Research Letters, published by the Institute of Physics in London, scientists said as a result of greenhouse gas emissions up to now the world is committed to a sea-level rise of 3.6 feet by the year 3000. The study ...


  • Ggreenhouse gas emissions have irreversible effects on sea-level rise

    According to research by scientists at Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Manchester Metropolitan University and the Université catholique de Louvain, greenhouse gas emissions produced up to this point has ensured an irreversible sea-level rise of 1.1 meters ...


  • KBRR investigates how landscape is being changed

    KBRR scientists - working with Alaska and Outside colleagues, local stakeholders and volunteer monitors - are trying to learn more about the relationships between coastal uplift, glacial melt and sea level rise by monitoring the impacts of these ...


  • Thousand years of sea rise 'inevitable'

    Whatever we do, greenhouse gas emissions have alreadytriggered an irreversible warming of Earth that will cause sea levels to rise for more than a thousand years to come, claims a European team. The researchers modeled sea-level changes over ...


  • Global warming will relentlessly drive sea rise: Study

    The research showed that we have already committed ourselves to a sea-level rise of 1.1 metres by the year 3000 as a result of our emissions up to now, the journal Environmental Research Letters reports.


  • VIDEO: Radar data highlights sea level threat

    10:00 27 Sep 2012. Source: This story is sourced from Flight International Subscribe today ». A new high-resolution dataset from multiple orbiting missions has shown the global sea level to have risen by an average of 3mm per year over the past 18 years.


  • University of Colorado Expands Glacier Research with Grant from Eos Systems

    ... a well-known researcher in glaciology, sea level rise, and geophysics, has been awarded a three year grant that will allow him to expand his study of glaciers on behalf of the University of Colorado and the Institute of Arctic and Alpine Research ...


  • Sea level fall defies climate warnings

    Data maps published by CSIRO showed sea levels had risen particularly strongly in Northern Australia between 2002 and 2012, he said.
