The sea is rising faster

The sea surface has risen by about 23 cm since 1880, and the annual rate is currently 3.3 mm per year and increases with time. The forecasts for the year 2100 are between 30 cm up to 2 meters, depending on the rate of heat expansion of the oceans and the melting of land-based glaciers and ice sheets.
