Antarctic Sea Ice Is at a "Very Concerning" Record Low

It’s winter in Antarctica, when sea ice cover typically grows. But this year’s sea ice is way behind, reaching record lows with implications for the planet.

Greenland ancient ice melting shows high risk of sea level rise today

An international team of scientists was amazed to discover that Greenland was a green land only 416,000 years ago. Much of the Greenland ice sheet vanished when it got warm which caused a global sea level rise.

NASA Finds Sea Levels Have Risen Over 9 Centimeters in Just 30 Years

Since 1993, the seas rose by a total of 9.1 centimeters. Two years ago, it went up by 0.27 centimeters. That one-year rise from 2021 to 2022 may sound small by comparison, but it's a harbinger.

The Greenland Ice Sheet is close to a melting point of no return

Releasing 1000 gigatons of carbon into the atmosphere will cause the southern portion of the ice sheet to melt. If it melts entirely, global sea level would rise about 7 meters. We've emitted about 500 gigatons of carbon already.

Ice Sheet Collapse at Both Poles to Start Sooner Than Expected

Even if we manage to stabilize Earth's temperatures by peaking at 2 °C, Greenland's and Antarctica's vast ice sheets are on track for irreversible melting, a new study warns. 

Greenland's ice melt enough to cover Florida in water

This meltdown has caused concern, as continued large-scale melting of Greenland’s ice could lead to flooding in coastal cities worldwide.

Million in Asia's cities can be affected by sea-level rise

As many as 15 million people and 1,829 square km land in seven Asian cities could be affected by extreme sea-level rise and coastal flooding by 2030, a recent report by Greenpeace East Asia flagged. 

Iceberg due to collide with island splits in 2

Antarctic iceberg A-68A has drifted menacingly close to a remote island in the southern Atlantic Ocean. The giant iceberg could strike land this month. It has now split into 2 pieces.

Greenland ice sheet sheds record amount

Greenland's massive ice sheet saw a record net loss of 532 billion tonnes last year, raising red flags about accelerating sea level rise, according to new findings.

Modern sea-level rise linked to human activities, confirmed

Sea-level rise, which has accelerated in recent decades, threatens to permanently inundate densely populated coastal cities and communities, other low-lying lands and costly infrastructure by 2100.

Half of world's sandy beaches could disappear by 2100

According to a new study, up to half of the world’s sandy beaches are at risk of disappearing by the end of this century if no action is taken to limit greenhouse gas emissions. 

Rising Sea Levels Are Displacing Villagers in Myanmar

Millions of people in Myanmar are threatened by flooding and rapid soil erosion caused by rising sea levels. One village of 1,500 residents had to relocate entirely, moving further inland to escape the rising water, and abandoning farmland in the process.

Global sea levels could rise far more than predicted

Researchers say two-metre sea level rise is possible if global temperatures warm by five degrees Celsius by 2100.

Rising sea levels could destroy Hawaii's iconic Waikiki Beach

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.

Greenland’s ice is melting four times faster than thought

New science suggests Greenland may be approaching a dangerous tipping point, with implications for global sea-level rise.
