Sea Levels Could Rise Twice As Fast By The End Of The Century
A study using new climate models says melting ice from Antarctica could mean seas will rise twice as much as the U.N. had predicted by 2100.By Evan Thomas | March 30, 2016
A new study says the latest international projections for sea level rise come up short — way short.
The new research rolled atmospheric melting from Antarctica and Greenland into its models, which the researchers say is "often overlooked" when scientists predict sea level rise.
The researchers found, "Antarctica has the potential to contribute more than a metre of sea-level rise by 2100 and more than 15 metres by 2500."
