Historical records may have underestimated sea level rises by 25%, controversial Nasa research claims



Global sea level rise in the 20th century resulting from Greenland's melting ice may have been more significant than previous estimates suggest.
A new analysis using Nasa satellite data has determined that tide gauges, the records typically used to plot these changes, may have underestimated the actual global average by roughly 25 percent.
