Accelerated Melting Of Continental Icepacks Is Major Reason For Rise In Sea Level Between 2003 And 2008
Melting icepacks causing sea level rise. French researchers have concluded from analysis of data that the increased rate of melting continental icepacks has played a major role in the rising sea levels between 2003 and 2008. The team, from the Laboratory for Study of Space Geophysics and Oceanography at the University of Toulouse in France, have found that melting glacial masses account for 80% of the average sea level rise.
Many thanks, French scientists, for helping to expand the knowledge of our critical global situation. Let us quickly adopt eco-friendly lifestyles to help stabilize and preserve our Mother Earth.
