Sea levels may rise higher than predicted

According to scientists, sea levels might rise much higher than originally predicted, as a result of melting ice in Greenland and Antartica.

Scientists had thought so far that the sea level could rise by less than one metre by 2100.

The new study, however, shows this amount can double. According to researchers, this increase in sea levels can ultimately effect hundreds of millions of the world’s population.

This marine topic, particularly in reference to an increase in sea levels,  has led to controversy in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, about which a report had been published in 2013. The report had stated that unless there was a reduction in emissions, the sea levels could rise to between 52 cm and 98 cm by 2100. A number of experts had stated, however, that these figures were on the conservative side.
