Scientists have warned that the rise in global sea level has accelerated in the last 25 years. Accordingly, in 2100, many of the world's most important cities, including Istanbul, will be completely or partially submerged.
Scientists have warned that the rise in global sea level has accelerated in the last 25 years.
Scientists from the University of Colorado, the University of South Florida and the Old Dominion University of the United States, according to global sea-level measurements from satellites since 1992, rose by an average of 2.5 millimeters per year in the 1990s, It was determined that it rose 4 millimeters.
Scientists have warned that this could cause major problems for coastal cities.
The research emphasizes that global warming has an effect on the growth rate in two ways. It was noted that warming in the atmosphere and sea water caused the water levels to increase relatively due to the expansion caused by increasing the amount of water by accelerating the melting of large ice masses such as Antarctica and Greenland.
Based on the results of the research, the International Center for Climate Change (Climate Central) published an interactive map and various photographs of how the cities with coasts in the year 2100 will be affected by climate change.
Accordingly, the increase in global sea level will also affect the coast of Istanbul.
