Furthermore, according to the IPCC, since 1961, average global ocean temperatures have increased, because the oceans have absorbed more than 80 percent of the heat added to the Earth's climate system. Such warming causes seawater to expand, contributing to sea level rise. The IPCC also reports that mountain glaciers and snow cover have declined, on average, in both hemispheres, and that widespread decreases in the sizes of glaciers and polar ice caps, combined with losses in the ice sheets of Greenland and Antarctica, have very likely contributed to a sea level rise of 0.17 mete...
