The day of terrible danger is drawing near to us, scientists have warned. This is our fault.
As the oceans and seas heat up, the world’s largest ice sheet may begin to melt in a few days. The study was published in the International Journal of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PINAS).
The largest ice sheet in the world is at the South Pole In Antarctica. Name – ‘East Antarctic ice sheet’. East Antarctica also has the world’s South Pole. This massive ice sheet is about 3,000 meters above sea level. Approx 35/40 percent of Mount Everest’s height!
The amount of ice still present in this iceberg is 26 million cubic kilometres. When this ice melts completely, the water level in all the oceans and oceans of the world will rise to 58 meters or 190 feet. As a result, many cities and towns will be wiped out, many countries will be lost from the world map, and it will not take long to submerge a large part of many continents.
Scientists fear that it may not be too late to melt the world’s largest ice sheet dangerously. As a result, from the middle of this century to the end of the century, the sea, sea level may rise at least 3 or 4 feet. It can come from 8 to 10 feet. Many cities of India, America, Europe can be submerged under water.
An international research team has given this warning in its recently published research paper. The team consists of researchers from the Institute of Earth Sciences at the University of Heidelberg, Germany. There are also scientists and researchers from the University of Southampton in England.
How did scientists predict this? Scientists have gone far back in time to get an idea of what might happen in the coming days. You see, how was Antarctica 26 million to 24 million years ago?.
Scientists have found that with the rapid development of industry and technology, the amount of toxic greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and sulfur dioxide has accumulated in the world’s air due to the misuse of crude oil and natural gas in nature’s reserves. 24 million years ago, the amount of carbon dioxide in our planet’s air was exactly the same. His reason was, of course, different. Earth’s body is then being lit by solar radiation. Sun was then in his youth. As a result, the East Antarctic ice sheet melted considerably at that time.
Later, 25 million years before today, when the Earth began to cool, the ice sheet re-deposited, increasing the size of the world’s largest ice sheet. He was not allowed to melt that way for so many days.
Researchers have found another reason that this iceberg melted later. As you can see, the formation of large icebergs in the Northern Hemisphere has caused water levels in the oceans and oceans to drop. As a result, the oceans and seas have become very hot over the years, but the East Antarctic ice sheet has not felt this summer. But now that large ice cubes have begun to melt in the Northern Hemisphere, scientists fear that sea and sea level will rise by the middle of this century. In that case, scientists feared that it would no longer be possible for the proximal part of the former Antarctic ice sheet to survive that hot seawater attack.
