Rising sea levels could threaten infrastructure worth more than Aus$226 billion (US$205 billion) in Australia if climate change is left unchecked, a study warned on Wednesday.
A new NOAA nationwide analysis shows that between 1996 and 2011, 64,975 square miles in coastal regions—an area larger than the state of Wisconsin—experienced changes in land cover, including a decline in wetlands and ...
Ice discharge from Antarctica could contribute up to 37 centimeters to the global sea level rise within this century, a new study shows. For the first time, an international team of scientists provide a comprehensive estimate ...
A combination of coastal defences and rising sea levels could change typical UK tidal ranges, potentially leading to a higher risk of flooding, say scientists.
Climate scientists predict that by 2100, sea level will be 2 to 3 feet higher than it is today, but it appears that oyster reefs may adapt to the change.
(Phys.org) —The instability of coastal sand dunes – already an issue for Adelaide's suburban beaches – is likely to worsen as sea levels rise with global warming, according to Flinders University Professor Patrick Hesp.
Reports that a portion of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet has begun to irretrievably collapse, threatening a 4-foot rise in sea levels over the next couple of centuries, surged through the news media last week. But many are ...
Climate change and sea level rise are threatening historic US landmarks, from the Statue of Liberty to NASA's coastal rocket launch sites, and the nation needs to prepare, scientists said Tuesday.
Sea level rise is threatening the majority of NASA's launch pads and multi-billion dollar complexes famous for training astronauts and launching historic missions to space, scientists said Tuesday.
Three years of observations show that the Antarctic ice sheet is now losing 159 billion tonnes of ice each year – twice as much as when it was last surveyed.
