When the glaciers melt, it unleashes pent-up pressures in the Earth’s crust, causing extreme geological events such as earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanic eruptions. According to new research reports the reliquified water causes sea levels to rise and increases the weight on the ocean floor, which can also have an effect on the grinding tectonic plates deep below the surface and rebalancing ocean floor.
Please published this research based article for comments and to save Siachen Glacier as result of war over this glacier is noting but its rapid melting thus causing sea level rise.
