Sea level rise caused by melting ice could be halved this century if the Paris Agreement target of limiting warming to 1.5°C is met. A new study, from an international research team including University of Leeds scientists, explored the land ice contribution to sea level in the 21st century arising from the world’s glaciers and the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets.
