Global groundwater depletion leads to sea level rise

Large-scale extraction of groundwater for irrigation of crops leads to a sea level rise of 0.8 mm per year, which is about one fourth of the current rate of sea level rise of 3.1 mm per year. This conclusion follows from a study by hydrologists from Utrecht University and the research institute Deltares. A paper about this study is currently in press with Geophysical Research Letters.

Almost half of the NOAA reported sea level rise is due to groundwater mining.
