Global sea-level rise
Riccardo Pravettoni, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
According to the 2007 IPCC report, global average sea
level rise will vary from 18 cm to 59 cm by 2100. The
IPCC models did not account for the accelerated melting
of ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica. Some of the
latest research, however, estimates a global sea level rise
of between 0.6 and 1.2 metres by 2100.
