Climate change is causing sea levels to rise faster than the worst-case scenario predicted by scientists, a new study has found.
The study found considerably greater sea-level rises could be realised than those predicted by recent assessments made by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
According to the IPCC, the average global sea levels are unlikely to rise by more than 1.1 metres within this century even with the most intensive greenhouse gas emission scenarios.
