Scientists figured out when the sea level began to rise and even named the exact year

Scientists figured out when the sea level began to rise and even named the exact year

(ORDO NEWS) — Researchers have conducted a global analysis of sea levels on the planet over the past two thousand years. The rise appeared to have started earlier than previously thought.

The results, published in Nature Communications, indicate that the rise began around the same time as the Industrial Revolution. The researchers found that the rate of this process clearly outpaced background variability by 1863.

The sea is coming

At the same time, throughout the North Atlantic, signs of a significant rise in sea levels appeared earlier than in other regions of the planet.

This can be judged from a variety of instrumental and indirect data: from the results of the study of foraminifers, diatoms, archaeological evidence, and depositional geochemistry.

The fact that by the middle of the 20th century, modern rates are observed in all the studied points shows the significant impact of global sea level rise on our planet, says environmental scientist Jennifer Walker from Rutgers University.

The process is accelerating
