Sea level rise faster and greater than previously thought, new study finds

Feb 03, 2021 13:43 IST

The rise in sea level could be much worse, faster and greater than previously thought, according to a new study published in the journal Ocean Science.

Recently, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change shared that the sea level was unlikely to rise beyond 1.1 metre by 2100. However, according to researchers from the University of Copenhagen, under a worst-case warming scenario, sea levels could rise as much as 1.35 metres by 2100.

The current models that predict sea level rise are not 'sensitive enough', the researchers shared.
