Global Sea Level

The Hydrosphere includes earth's oceans, glaciers and ice sheets, ground water and perma frost, lakes, rivers, and the plants and animals that live within. Oceans makes up 97.5% of the Hydrosphere and the remaning 2.5% is fresh water, where of 68.7% is galciers, 30.1% is ground water and 0.8% is perma frost.

According to hydrospheric science

Earth’s atmosphere is so much more than the air we breathe. A trip from the surface of Earth to outer space would result in passing through five different layers, each with very different characteristics.

Climate Change: Global Sea Level

Global mean sea level has risen about 8–9 inches (21–24 centimeters) since 1880, with about a third of that coming in just the last two and a half decades. The rising water level is mostly due to a combination of melt water from glaciers and ice sheets and thermal expansion of seawater as it warms. In 2020, global mean sea level was 91.3 millimeters (3.6 inches) above the 1993 average, making it the highest annual average in the satellite record (1993-present).
