Liputan6.com, California – Global warming (global warming) is a long-rumored issue. Various negative effects of the phenomenon continues to be felt human until now.
In fact, based on rumors and scientific speculation in circulation, the fate of Earth will end due to global warming which will melt ice blocks in the north and south poles, causing sea levels to rise.
Concerning the issue, recent research on the effects of global warming was recently released by The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). The study shows the study results of sea level rise on Earth due to global warming effect.
Based on the information reported by The Guardian, Saturday (29/08/2015), the study shows that sea level has risen as high as eight centimeters since 1992.
If the future of Earth's climate is increasingly unstable due to the effects of global warming, the sea level will be higher and cause most of the Earth's surface to sink.
Previously, the researchers estimated the increase ranged from 0.3 to 0.9 centimeters to 100 years. However, NASA dismissed the predictions of these scientists with the results of a recently announced study.
"Sea level rise is faster and bigger than predicted 50 years ago, it could get worse," said NASA Associate Professor Colorado Center for Astrodynamics Research (CCAR) expert Steve Nerem.
In fact, the rate of increase in sea water is different in some areas and experienced an increase in sea water so that the decrease of ground level occurs.
Sea level rise is caused by water temperatures that tend to heat up. Almost half of the world's giant icebergs melted by it.
