Eight of world's 10 largest cities to be hit by the sea rise: study

Researchers at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in Falmouth, Massachusetts found that glaciers on the world's second-largest island are melting more than 30 percent faster than during the mid-1900s. The study's findings imply that eight of the world's 10 largest cities will be hard hit by the sea rise.

Melting Greenland ice sheets may raise sea levels as much as an eye-popping seven meters (23 feet), endangering coastal cities like New York, Lagos, and Shanghai, according to a new study.
