NASA Sea Level Prediction


How much and how fast will sea level rise in the coming decades? What makes sea level rise such a hard thing to predict? Who will be affected?

Sea level has risen about seven inches around the globe since 1900, and the most recent projection from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change projected an additional rise of seven to 23 inches by the year 2100. And yet, that range did not include any contribution from the melting of glaciers and ice sheets.

Join this NASA Google+ Hangout on Tues., April 2, at 1 p.m. EDT/10 a.m. PDT, to learn about the current state of sea level rise research, the questions yet to be answered and the potential impact on coastal communities.
