Sea levels rising effects not only our ocean, but those on land as well. It is happening due to melting ice and heat expansion connected to global warming. As land-based ice melts due to increases in temperature (see temperature stop for more details), more water ends up in the ocean. The levels of water than rise, and this extra water floods onto the land around the coast. Flooding and damage to coastal areas then happen. It also damages coastal wildlife.
