A new study finds that, for each degree Celsius that global temperatures increase, sea levels could rise by 2.3 meters, and will remain high for centuries to come.
The study from the leading climate institute, Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, was the first to pair data from climate history with computer simulations of contributing factors associated with long-term sea-level rise. This included ocean thermal expansion, glacier melting, and melting of the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets.
