Bangladesh, Seychelles, and Cocos (Keeling) Islands have relatively high rates of sea level rise, study says

Written by 

Danger, Danger! A new study reveals that Seychelles, Bangladesh and Cocos Keeling Islands have high rates of sea level rise. These regions are therefore highly vulnerable to coastal flooding induced by the accelerating sea level rise in future decades, posing significant threats to coastal communities and ecosystems. The findings published in the Journal of Hydrology indicate that vertical land motion is an important factor affecting sea level changes for the regions of Seychelles and Cocos Islands. There is a strong relationship between air temperature and sea level rise for all studied regions. The study, Characterizing the Indian Ocean sea level changes and potential coastal flooding impacts under global warming, is a first attempt to examine regional changes in sea level of the Indian Ocean.
