The Permanent Service for Mean Sea Level has been collecting data from all over the world and collating it at the National Oceanography Centre (NOC) in Liverpool, England, since 1933. … [Read full article]
A new study has found that rising sea levels over the next century could exact massive financial tolls from communities along the Californian coastline.
A new method to determine the age of fossilised coral reef skeletons has provided evidence that the sea level may not remain as stable in a warming world as had been previously estimated.
Often thought to be one of the more stable processes on Earth, the rise and fall of the tides, have turned out to be as unpredictable as anything else, when considered over a longer time frame. This, from new research which suggests that shows how tides have changed dramatically over thousands of years.
“If West Antarctica collapsed, that means it’s more unstable than we expected, which is quite scary,” said a scientist who set out to determine whether Greenland or Antarctica will introduce more melting water to rising sea levels.
A new study conducted by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) along East Coast communities in America has found that they may be at risk to higher sea levels accompanied by more destructive storm surges in future El Niño years.
A new study has shown that not only does melting ice contribute more to rising sea levels than thermal expansion, but that ocean levels are likely to continue rising well after the warming of the atmosphere stabilises.
A new study led by a University of Michigan researcher has shown that the melting glaciers and ice caps on Canadian Arctic islands are playing a much greater role in the rise of global sea levels than had previously been assumed.
In many climate models and scientists’ theories the West Antarctic ice sheet is expected to melt over the coming hundreds of years and raise the sea levels. Much of this is based on the theory that during the last interglacial period the ice sheet must have melted in order to raise the sea levels as much as they had been. However new research suggests that the West Antarctic ice sheet may be more stable than had been previously realised.
New research which has focused solely on the continental United States of America has found that by 2100, 9 percent of the land within 180 coastal cities could be threatened … [Read full article]

New research from Victoria University in Australia has revealed new findings pointing to why the Antarctic ice sheets have melted in the past, and how they might be most affected … [Read full article]
Rising sea levels? No problem, let’s just do some massive geoengineering. Hmm, not so fast.. h/t Climate Denial Crock of the Week
