Sea level rise on the U.S. East Coast has accelerated much faster than in other parts of the world—roughly three to four times the global average, a new study says.
Sea levels worldwide are expected to rise as global warming
melts ice and causes water to expand. Those levels, though, are
expected to vary from place to place, due to factors such as ocean
currents, differences in seawater temperature and saltiness, and the Earth‘s shape.
Now it seems scientists have pinpointed just such a variance.
