With the intensification of global climate change, rising sea levels have become an urgent environmental issue, having profound impacts on marine ecosystems. Rising sea levels lead to ecosystem degradation, decreased biodiversity, and shrinking habitats, further threatening the survival and reproduction of marine life. The aim of this study is to systematically evaluate the impact of sea level rise on marine ecosystems, explore its potential impacts on marine biodiversity and human society, and discuss possible adaptation and mitigation measures. By adopting a comprehensive analysis method, this study provides a detailed analysis of the causes and impact mechanisms of sea level rise, as well as the response and adaptability of ecosystems. This study emphasizes the importance of strengthening monitoring, research, and evaluation of the impact of sea level rise at the global and regional levels, in order to better develop effective adaptation and mitigation measures and mitigate the negative effects of sea level rise.
