Sea level rising at fasted pace in 2,800 years: study
MetadataShow full item record
The world’s oceans are rising at a faster rate than any time in the past 2,800 years, and might even have fallen without the influence of human-driven climate change, researchers say. Sea levels rose globally by about 5.5 inches (14 centimeters) from 1900 to 2000, said the study led by Rutgers University, published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. In the absence of global warming, the change in sea level would have been far less — ranging between a 1.2 inch (three centimeters) drop in the last century, to a rise of about 2.8 inches (seven centimeters).
