Ice, Oceans & Sea Level Rise
Ice, Oceans & Sea Level Rise
Identifying long-term dynamics to assess the risks. This is one of our research topics.
 

What is the future of the majestic ice masses of Antarctica that store enough water to make sea levels rise many meters, if it gets released? The science is clear that what we do today, if we keep on emitting greenhouse gases for just a few further decades, will shape our planet’s coastlines for millennia to come. From shrinking Arctic sea-ice to weakening critical currents such as the Gulf Stream or crumbling ecosystems like the coral reefs - the oceans, covering two thirds of our planet, are one major life-support system for people all around the world.
