New climate models suggest that future sea level rise could be much lower than previously feared
New climate models suggest that future sea level rise could be much lower than previously feared
Two papers published in Nature this week call into doubt recent predictions of imminent Antarctic ice sheet collapse. They are led by King's College London and Victoria University of Wellington, and involve colleagues from across the US, Canada, UK and Europe, including the University of Bristol. The first paper suggests that sustained collapse of Antarctic ice-cliffs into the ocean, caused by rising global temperatures and melting ice shelves, may not have a large impact on sea level rise.
