Sea level fluctuations driven by changes in the climate over the last million years have been linked with the geography of the seafloor, according to not one but two new scientific studies.

The authors of both studies have made the suggestion that underwater volcanic activity was influenced by ice ages in the past. With long chains of underwater volcanoes run for such long swathes of seafloor – around 37,000 miles of it to be exact – when these volcanoes erupt they may be dumping enoug...
