As Ice Sheets Melt Faster, Sea Level Rise Is Accelerating Every Year

As Ice Sheets Melt Faster, Sea Level Rise Is Accelerating Every Year

The melting of the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets is speeding up the pace of sea level rise a little bit every year, according to a new analysis of satellite data published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences . If the current pace continues, the study estimates, seas could rise more than 2 feet by 2100. But the authors note that sea levels could increase at a much more rapid rate if, as expected, the melting of polar ice sheets intensifies this century. Global sea levels have risen 2.8 inches since the early 1990s. Over the long term, much of this rise has been driven by the expansion of water as it warms and from meltwater running off ice sheets and glaciers into the oceans. Scientists had previously estimated that global sea levels were increasing at a steady 3 millimeters (0.1 inches) per year. But the new analysis found that the annual rate has a...
