China DailyScientists arrived at this according to the results of their study of the characteristics of the growth and development of coral reefs.

According to the website,RTTheir calculations say that the water level rose was 0.73 mm annually, during the period from 1850 to 1900.

But from 1900 until 2015, the annual rise in the water level was 1.31 mm, and in the nineties of the last century, it rose to 3.75 mm per year..
