bullet3 Rise in mean sea levels

With climate change the mean global sea level is expected to rise by 15 to 95cm by 2100. This will be caused by the increase in global temperature, which will led to a thermal expansion of the sea water and the melting of the polar ice-caps. This would mean that low-lying areas would experience flooding. Countries like the Netherlands and Bangladesh will potentially experience some of the worst problems of flooding, while some small island nations could disappear altogether. For other countries, localised flooding on tidal rivers could be experienced. A rise in sea levels could also increase costal erosion, the salinity of esturies and some freashwater aquifers.
