Aerial icebergs

An iceberg floats in a fjord near the town of Tasiilaq, Greenland, June 18, 2018. New NASA data on water temperature, depth and salinity has helped explain why the rate of ice loss at northwestern Greenland s Tracy glacier is almost four times the rate of the nearby Heilprin glacier. That s because the fresh water flowing from Tracy, which sits on deeper bedrock, is mixing with a layer of warm, salty water off Greenland s coast, accelerating the melting process, the researchers found.

An iceberg floats in a fjord near the town of Tasiilaq, Greenland, June 24, 2018. Rising seas threaten low-lying cities, islands and industries worldwide. But projections for how high and how soon the rise will come vary wildly in part because scientists lack clarity on how fast warming oceans are melting polar ice sheets. The uncertainty confounds the preparations of governments and businesses and fuels the arguments of climate-change skeptics. REUTERS/Lucas Jackson

Britain s Environment Agency, for instance, foresees upgrades to a barrier on the Thames River to protect London against 35.4 inches of sea level rise by 2100, but could modify the plans to account for a catastrophic 8.85 feet.

A 2016 study in a journal of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences predicted that an event comparable to Superstorm Sandy, which flooded large swaths of the New York region in 2012, would be up to 17 times more likely by 2100 if seas rise by 3.28 feet.
