These insights are based on data collected by a tool developed by NASA to forecast which cities are vulnerable to flooding due to the melting of ice in a warming climate.
The research, detailed in the journal Science Advances, could provide scientists a way to determine which ice sheets they should be "most anxious about".
A study carried out in the journal Sciences Advances says that over the next 100 years, glacial melt could push up sea levels in Mangaluru by 15.98 cm when compared to the 15.26 cm for Mumbai and 10.65 cm for NY. The Indian city of Kakinada in Andhra Pradesh is also at a risk of getting flooded.
"As cities and countries attempt to build plans to mitigate flooding, they have to be thinking about 100 years in the future and they want to assess risk in the same way that insurance companies do", said Erik Ivins, senior scientist at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in the US.

Sydney, on the other hand is expected to face the effects of ice loss in the Amundsen Sea Sector, a region in Antarctica farthest away from it, while the glaciers closest to the Australian city are less likely to affect it.
The GFM has now been applied to 293 major port cities to allow coastal planners to readily calculate local seal level (LSL) change. The forecasting tool showed that in London, local sea-level change is hugely affected by changes on the western part of Greenland ice sheet.
For example, in London, local sea-level changes is significantly affected by changes on the western part of the Greenland ice sheet, whereas in NY, such changes are greatly sensitive to changes in the northeastern portions of the ice sheet, the tool showed.
