Earth is the only known planet with liquid water on its surface and is certainly the only one in our solar system. 71% of the Earth's surface is covered by ocean, more than half of this area is over 3 kilometres (9,800 ft) deep.
Current sea level rise has occurred at a mean rate of 1.8 mm per year for the past century.
Scientific evidence supports the claim that current sea level rise is caused by global warming.
