Sea Level Rising
By Stephany and Savanna
Best Case Scenario
If temperatures rise faster than expected, this best case scenario may not be achieved. The hotter the climate, the faster the sea level will rise. That is how the worst case scenario is achieved. (2) Also, people have released a large amount of heat trapping gasses into the atmosphere over the years, causing the climate to get warmer. This will help the sea levels rise. (4)
Graph of Sea Level Increase
Shows how much the sea has risen, and how much it is predicted to rise.
Ice Caps Breaking
Shows ice caps melting, which is one component of how the sea will rise.
Shows glaciers which have been melting for a while now and making the sea level rise.
Worst Case Scenario
The maximum the sea will rise is 190 centimeters. (3)
