Sea rises faster than previously projected

A recent study done by NASA by observing the amount of ice loss at Greenland and Antarctica has concluded that the estimations done  by UN in 2007 are too conservative.

it is said in 2050, the sea level is to rise by 15cm and 56cm by 2100. 15cm may not sound like much but on average, a beach have a 1/50 gradient, that is 1cm tall for every 50cm length, 15cm is enough to eliminate most of Brunei coasts and enough to drown small islands.
