New Studies Reveal Fastest Sea Level Rise in 2,000 Years

Global mean sea level is rising faster than it has in more than 2,000 years along with temperatures and greenhouse gas emissions, according to four new climate research papers.

Greenland and the Arctic in a State of Change

The news this week has focused on the surprisingly rapid and extensive melting of the Greenland ice sheet earlier this month. As dramatic as the satellite images are, the changing state of the arctic and the accelerating ice loss in Greenland and throughout the poles is an ongoing concern for scientists on the ground. This video from Climate Progress World shows how scientists…

Greenland and the Great Ice Dilema

The Greenland Ice Sheet is melting fast, which very well may affect the rise of the sea level.

Accelerating ice melt from the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets will significantly impact sea level rise in the coming decades

Melting Ice Sheets the Largest Contributor to Sea Level Rise

A new study to be published this month in the journal Geophysical Research Letters has found that the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets are losing mass at an accelerating rate. The rapidly accelerating ice melt from the ice sheets is happening much sooner the models have predicted. According to the research, the ice sheets are now overtaking the ice loss…
