Berlin – Sea levels could rise by 2.3m for each degree Celsius that global temperatures increase and they will remain high for centuries to come, according to a new study by the leading climate research institute.

“We’re confident that our estimate is robust because of the combination of physics and data that we used,” Levermann told Reuters. “We think we’ve set a benchmark for how much sea levels will rise along with temperature increases.”
