Sea level rise has currently become a major issue for climate change. It has globally drawn attention because as time passes, global sea levels will continue to rise at an accelerating rate in the 21st century. It will cause a serious impact on environmental problems such as coastal inundation, salt intrusion, coastal erosion, and other phenomena. These scenarios lead to earth problems in which land and oceans continue shifting due to climate change, posing a threat to the very existence of all living beings in the coming years. As a result, climate monitoring is critical for tracking the change. Therefore, this paper reviews the physical factors that contribute to sea level rise. The main contributors for sea level rises, such as ice melting from land into the ocean, thermal expansion, a slowing of the Gulf Stream, and land sinkage, are being discussed. This paper also emphasises the studies of regional sea level, and sea level rate changes. Finally, this review will be discussed in order to clarify the causes of sea level rise issues for human society.
