Sea Water Level Rise

Sea Water Level Rise

 

Climate change had an enormous impact on ocean. Global sea water level has risen approximately 8-9 inches (21-24 cm) since 1880, with about a third of this amount coming just in the last 25 years. This phenomenon is caused by two main factors:

  • The added water from melting Glaciers and from the loss of Greenland and Antarctica’s ice sheets
  • The thermal expansion of seawater: the world’s seas have absorbed more the 90% of the heat from GHG emissions resulting from human activity. Ocean heating has also a negative impact on the biodiversity in the waters.

RFC will be exploring a number of potential solutions to these threats, in various potential worldwide locations.

Coastal ‘blue carbon’ ecosystems are critical.

Just 0.7% of the world’s forests are coastal mangroves, y​​​​​​et they store up to 10 times as much carbon per hectare as tropical forests.
