During the last century geophysical changes, presumably natural energetic processes, resulted in gradual climatic warming. It has caused intensification of natural water exchange, continental drying, glacier retreat and ocean replenishment. Increasing anthropogenic influence makes the water exchange period longer. All these processes have resulted in a global sea level rise at a rate of 1.5 mm per year. Future warming could amplify this process significantly.
