Rising sea levels, partnered by sea floor erosions, have already increased the water depths more than what scientists previously thought.
The palm-fringed paradise is hoping more tourists will help turn things around for their vulnerable nation.
Researchers have found that rising sea levels could significantly lower water temperatures around coral reefs and help reduce coral bleaching.
Rising sea-levels due to climate change caused five islands to disappear and six islands to experience severe shoreline recession in the South Pacific.
Crocodilians include a variety of modern and ancient alligators, crocodiles and their relatives. A team of researchers recently examined how the diverse species responded to past climate changes and how they might cope in the future.
As part of their ongoing "ScienceCasts" video series, Science@NASA reminds just how closely experts from around the world have been keeping a wary eye on Greenland's ice sheet. The result has been a mountain of research all showing the same thing: under the thinning of ice is a whole lot of nothing, and that's not good news.
New research shows that England and Northern Europe in particular are at risk of major sea level rise in the future – more so than previously thought.
Like in the Arctic, Antarctic and even Canada, glaciers in Alaska are melting. Now, new research reveals that like their famous brethren, they may make large contributions to global sea level rise.
Just yesterday, Nature World News reported on Greenland's mysteriously vanishing lakes, which can drain entirely in just a matter of a few hours. But now, a subsequent study is saying that while warming temperatures have created more of these supraglacial lakes, they are not likely to worsen Greenland's contribution to sea level rise.
It's no secret that Greenland's glaciers are melting in the face of warming temperatures, but a new analysis aims to show just how their ebb and flow will impact sea level rise in the future.
While it's no secret that much of the Antarctic Peninsula is rapidly melting, scientists were disappointed when they recently found that a previously stable region of Antarctica is experiencing rapid ice loss - so much so that it is even affecting Earth's gravity field.
With climate change heating things up, and the Earth's poles rapidly melting, it should come as no surprise that a major Antarctic ice shelf may completely disappear by 2020, according to a new NASA study.
One of Antarctica's largest ice shelves is thinning from above and below, helping scientists finally understand just what exactly is causing this rapid ice melt, according to new research.
It seems that every day scientists are telling us how climate change is causing the Antarctic ice sheet to melt, threatening to raise sea levels and drive the region's iconic penguins into extinction. And now, it appears that Antarctica, which was already rapidly disappearing, is melting faster than ever before.
Experts at the University of Central Florida have recently revealed an alarming discovery. Based on observations and projections about rising sea levels, they have concluded that climate change may have an adverse impact on more than 30 years of conservation efforts focused on keeping endangered sea turtles around for another generation.
