According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, "the two major causes of global sea level rise are thermal expansion of the oceans (water expands as it warms) and the loss of land-based ice due to increased melting. ... Estimates for the 20th century show that global average sea level rose at a rate of about 1.7 mm/year. Satellite observations available since the early 1990s provide more accurate sea level data with nearly global coverage. This decade-long satellite altimetry data set shows that since 1993, sea level has been rising at a rate of around 3 mm/year, significantly higher than the average during the previous half century. Coastal tide gauge measurements confirm this observation."
