What’s it about?
Sea level is rising. In fact, it’s rising faster and faster. Using satellite data, the authors show that this is the case, even when variations from volcanic events and ‘ordinary’ ocean shifts (like El Nino) are taken into account.
Why does it matter?
Computer models of climate change have suggested that the rate of sea level rise is accelerating. Here we have proof.
Why did I read this?
I have a general interest in research related to modern climate change. This paper caught my eye.
