Limit Global Warming to 1.5°C and Halve the Land Ice Contribution to Sea Level this Century

May 5, 2021

A new study predicts that a major contributor to sea-level rise – melting land ice – could be halved this century (from today to 2100) if we meet the Paris Agreement target of limiting global warming to 1.5°C. This work combines nearly 900 simulations, including some of Berkeley Lab Computational Scientist Dan Martin's BISICLES models of Antarctic ice sheets. Read More »
