Scientists Can Now Tell How Much Glaciers Melting Will Affect Specific Cities

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 20:07:56 +0100

Scientists can now evaluate how much an individual glacier or ice sheet melting will contribute to rising sea levels in port cities around the world, according to new research.

The new study, published by NASA researchers in the journal Science Advances, expands on that research with a demonstration of exactly which melting glacier or ice sheet causes sea levels to rise in a given city.
