They believe that if the ice cap melts global average sea level will rise by about seven metres.
Even if global warming was halted the rise could be irreversible, they say.
Eustatic cycle is the interval of time during which a eustatic rise and fall of sea level takes place.
If the ice cap were to melt,the sea level would rise by an average of 230 feet.
Eustatic change is pertaining to worldwide changes of sea level that affect all the oceans.

Tarawa claims,along with the neighboring nation of Tuvalu,that it faces extinction should global warming lead to any sea level rise.
That would portend increased flows of glacial ice from Antarctica and a rise in global sea levels, endangering low-lying land areas.
The dominant issue in global warming, in my opinion, is sea-level change and the question of how fast ice sheets can disintegrate.
Side effects of global warming include melting polar ice,rising sea levels and other environmental reactions that ultimately affect plants and animals.
Global Sea-level Observing System
The global air pollution has initiated the continuous rise in the oceanic temperature and countless brilliantly coloured corals are becoming extinct.
In interglacial periods, such as at the present time,global sea level rose to its present level and higher, and marine sediments were deposited.
This effect, they say, is raising average temperatures and sea levels as the polar ice caps recede.
A global rise in sea level of one metre would almost completely inundate the coastal areas of Bangladesh. Island nations and continental beaches and cities would be endangered.

However, with the alteration of Earth's wobble the ocean and water tables shall not rise evenly all around Earth.
