“It’s the opposite of what we see in the rest of the world”

Sea levels in the Arctic have been falling by a little more than two millimetres a year — exactly the opposite of what is happening elsewhere.

“It’s enough to be significant. It’s remarkable that it’s the opposite sign of what we see in the rest of the world,” said researcher Remko Scharroo.

A Dutch-U.K. team made the discovery after analyzing radar altimetry data gathered by Europe’s ERS-2 satellite.

Scharroo said in an interview from his home in the U.S. that the drop in Arctic sea levels may be the result of climate change.

“It might mean that the currents are changing. It might be linked to the reasons why we see less sea ice,” Scharroo said.

As sea levels around the world rise, the arctic sea level is dropping. They say it may be from climate change or that ocean currents are changing. The water from the arctic is flowing south and could impact the earths orbit which could change earths rotation and cause longer days.
