Emissions Could Add 15 Inches to Sea Level by 2100, NASA-Led Study Finds

An international effort that brought together more than 60 ice, ocean and atmosphere scientists from three dozen international institutions has generated new estimates of how much of an impact Earth’s melting ice sheets could have on global sea levels by 2100. If greenhouse gas emissions continue apace, Greenland and Antarctica’s ice sheets could together contribute more than 15 inches (38 centimeters) of global sea-level rise – and that’s beyond the amount that has already been set in motion by Earth’s warming climate.
