Became known cities, which soon may go under water.
NASA scientists doing interesting prediction that in the future could save many lives, reports Rus.Media. So, scientists using special techniques was able to determine which areas affected by floods, if you will melt one or another part of the icy array.
So, for example, London will be seriously affected, if they start to melt the North-Western part of the Greenland ice sheet, and new York- if the “flow” of the Northern and Eastern part of the same shield.
Analysis of possible disasters takes into account different factors: the Earth’s rotation, gravitational effects, etc. Scientists say that the water level in the oceans is affected by three main factors.
The first factor is gravity ice with huge force pressing down on the water, whereby its level is increased; by reducing the pressure of the ice to the ocean is decreased accordingly.
The second factor is “tension-compression”: when reducing the pressure of the ice the Earth is expanding vertically.
And the last factor — the rotation of our planet: the movement of the Earth causes the water mass distributed over the surface.
