Sea-level Rise

Rising global sea and air temperatures have been causing waters to expand as they warm and ice sheets and glaciers to melt, resulting in higher sea levels around the world. According to a 2010 study by the Geological Survey of Newfoundland and Labrador, sea-level rise in this province could be as high as 40 centimeters by 2050, and 100 centimeters by 2100 (compared to 1990 levels).
