Hi gang,

Since 1880 the global sea level has risen by an amazing eight inches. This doesn't sound a lot but just stop and think for a minute about just how much water it would take to make a global increase of that magnitude. To help explain the processes involved and to show why the increase is happening, NASA's JPL has produced a brilliant webpage complete with images, animations and explanations that show this brilliantly. If you are interested or even slightly curious as to why then go here It is well worth spending the time to learn!
