In the research published in the journal “Nature”, a group of scientists from Newcastle University in England conducted a study examining global sea level rise.
In the study, the Norwegian seafloor and offshore ice sheets were examined.
Scientists have found that the ice sheets on the Norwegian coast are retreating up to 600 meters per day.
As a result of the researches, it was stated that the glacial masses in Antarctica retreated more than 30 meters per day.
In addition, in the study, it was noted that melting ice sheets in Antarctica due to climate change caused the water level in the oceans to rise by about 1 centimeter.
It is stated that the result of the research will shed light on how fast the ice in Greenland and Antarctica can melt and raise global sea levels.
Making a statement to the BBC on the subject, Dr. from Newcastle University in England. Christine Batchelor pointed out that if the temperature increase continues in this way, the ocean levels will rise.
Scientists, stating that the ice masses may melt in a shorter time than expected, warned that if the ice masses melt in this way, the rise of ocean waters will have great effects.
