Scientists studied data from 125,000 years ago to find out what climate change may do to sea levels

Sea levels rose 10 meters above present levels during Earth's last warm period 125,000 years ago, according to new research that offers a glimpse of what may happen under our current climate change trajectory. Our paper, published today in [19459004NatureCommunications shows that melting ice from Antarctica was the main driver of sea-level rise in the last interglacial period, lasting about …
