    Research team detects an acceleration in the 25-year satellite sea level record | PHYS.org

    Global sea level rise is not cruising along at a steady 3 mm per year, it's accelerating a little every year. The rate is increasing by about 0.08 mm/year every year—which could mean an annual rate of sea level rise of 10 mm/year, or even more, by 2100. This acceleration is driven mainly by accelerated melting in Greenland and Antarctica. It has the potential to double the total sea level rise by 2100 as compared to projections that assume a constant rate—to more than 60 cm instead of about 30.
