Global Warming leads to rising sea levels

Ocean Levels

Global Warming leads to long-term consequences like rising sea levels. Discover how in the video below.

An increase in temperature leads to warmer sea and ocean temperatures. Warmer water takes more room. This expansion is responsible for 25% of the level increase in all seas and oceans.

Changes in water masses are also due to the exchange of water with other reservoirs around the globe. Continental water reservoirs are affected by climate change with other reservoirs around the globe.

The atmosphere is another reservoir that plays a part in the process, due to the evaporation-precipitation cycle.

In the 20th century, the sea level has increased by 17 cm.
