NASA: NASA has released an animation video. This video is not a cartoon animation video but it shows how the sea level has increased in the last 10 years. Which is a very surprising phenomenon.
Earth’s sea level is rising and NASA researchers have been studying it for decades, but it can be hard to imagine something happening on such a large scale. But in the video released by NASA, it can be clearly seen that in the last 30 years, the sea level has risen by about 10 cm, that is, about 4 inches.
NASA Scientific Visualization Studio data visualizer Andrew J. A data visualization published by Christensen shows how much sea level has risen in three short decades. Continuous satellite monitoring of sea level by NASA has resulted in an image animating the observed changes in global sea level captured by observing satellites between 1993 and 2022.
The reason is the constantly changing climate and rising temperatures
Sea level has been measured regularly since 1993 by satellites that provide a ping microwave signal from the ocean surface and how long it takes to return. Based on this, researchers can calculate and monitor sea level height.
Oceanographer Matthew England of the University of New South Wales, Sydney, said that glaciers are affected by a constantly changing climate and rising temperatures. falls on the North and South Poles. Due to which the ice there melts. Mountain glaciers are melting and sea levels are rising through rivers.
Low-lying islands and coastal areas are prone to submergence
Islands will disappear from the world map due to sea level rise. In June and July last year, Antarctica’s ice melted very quickly. The ocean heatwave was 58 percent greater than the land one. Due to which the ice in the polar regions is melting rapidly.
Heatwaves killed 15,000 people in Europe last year. If emissions are not reduced, the situation is set to get much worse. However it can still be improved. So that the coming human generation does not have to face any kind of problem.
Between 2013 and 2022, sea level rose at a rate of 4.62 mm per year.
The United Nations agency World Meteorological Organization (WMO) said that the main cause of sea level rise is the increase in temperature. Due to which the glaciers are melting. The ocean is warming. Between 2013 and 2022, sea level is expected to rise at a rate of 4.62 mm per year.
This is double the speed from 1993 to 2002. WMO Secretary General Petri Talas said melting glaciers and rapid sea level rise is a very dangerous process. The reason for this is the release of large amounts of greenhouse gases. The water level will continue to rise in this century. Even after this, sea levels will continue to rise for thousands of years to come.
