Hawaii’s iconic Waikiki Beach could soon be underwater as rising sea levels caused by climate change overtake its white sand beaches and bustling city streets.
Seychelles President Danny Faure calls for stronger protection of the oceans. During the speech he was in a manned submersible that was 400 feet below the waves, on the seabed off the outer islands of the Seychelles.
Architecture firm has designed a concept for a floating city of 10,000 people that could help populations threatened by extreme weather events and rising sea levels.
Using a hot-water drill, British scientists have dug a 7,060-foot borehole through the Antarctic ice sheet. This largest ever ice hole for West Antarctica is meant to improve our understanding of climate-related sea level rise.
New science suggests Greenland may be approaching a dangerous tipping point, with implications for global sea-level rise.
Satellite images released this week reveal that the entirety of East Island was basically wiped out by powerful storm surges in the wake of Hurricane Walaka, one of the most intense Pacific hurricanes on record.
In the wake of the latest tsunami to hit the Indonesian coast, research shows how even slight sea-level rises linked to climate change could significantly increase the devastating effects of tidal waves.
A new research suggests a 2ºC (3.6ºF) rise in global temperatures could melt more than a million square kilometers (386,000 square miles) of ice if the temperatures are sustained long enough.
Arctic sea ice isn't just threatened by the melting of ice around its edges, a new study has found: Warmer water that originated hundreds of miles away has penetrated deep into the interior of the Arctic.
A team of NYU scientists has captured on video a four-mile iceberg breaking away from a glacier in eastern Greenland. This phenomenon, known as "calving", is a force behind the rise of global sea water levels.
A study found flooding from rising sea levels could cost $14 trillion worldwide annually by 2100, if the target of holding global temperatures below 2ºC above pre-industrial levels is missed.
Mass losses of the Antarctica have increased global sea level by 7.6 mm since 1992, with 40% of this rise coming in the last five years alone. In West Antarctica, mass losses today amount to about 160 billion tons per year.
These thousands of tiny islands scattered throughout the Pacific, which are home to more than 50,000 people, are at severe risk due to sea level rise and, as a new study details, wave-driven flooding.
