>China records highest sea level in 40 yrs


China has recorded a high coastal sea level over the past 10 years, reaching a peak in 2021 according to a report by the Ministry of Natural Resources.

Over the past year the sea level has been 84 millimeters higher than it was between 1993 and 2011.

The rising sea level is largely due to global warming, which has led to the expansion of seawater and the melting of glaciers and polar ice caps.

In China, land subsidence also contributes to a relative rise in sea level.
