Sea levels may rise

Sea levels may rise by about 2.3 meters for each degree celsius of global warming within the next 2,000 years, an international team of researchers has said.

While thermal expansion of the ocean and melting mountain glaciers are the most important factors causing sea-level changes today, the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets will be the dominant contributors within the next two millennia, according to the team’s findings published in the US journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
