Sea Levels Rising in Parts of Indian Ocean; Greenhouse Gases Play Role, Study Finds

A warming of 0.5 degrees Celsius of a large area of the Indian Ocean, primarily attributed to anthropogenic greenhouse gases, is said to be driving two perpendicular atmospheric wind patterns. The combined effect of these two patterns contributes to a widespread regional sea level rise (sea level changes are unevenly distributed globally) threatening islands and coastal areas.
