Rising Sea Levels explained – video

Global Warming leads to long-term consequences like rising sea levels.

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

The changes in water masses are also due to the exchange of water with other reservoirs around the globe. Sea and ocean level increased 7 centimeters in 23 years. Continental water reservoirs are affected by climate change, along 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, sea level has increased by 17 centimeters.
