According to the newspaper the Hill, if the sea level rises by 3 m and above, but water may be the spaceport at Cape Canaveral in Florida.
WASHINGTON, 5 Dec. /Offset. TASS Alexander Pahomov/. Due to the increase in global sea level due to global warming, the U.S. can lose by the end of the century over 13 thousand objects of historical heritage on the Eastern coast of the country. With such a forecast, as noted on Monday, the newspaper The Hill, was made by a group of American scientists led by archeologist from the University of Tennessee David Anderson.
In their study, they relied on the assessment of the UN intergovernmental panel on climate change, according to which increasing the level of water in the ocean by the year 2100 will be approximately 1 meter, and over the next few centuries — 5 meters.
“With the rise in sea level by only 1 m under water will be about 13 thousand archaeological sites, archaeological and historical sites on the East coast of the United States,” reads the report. “We will lose many evidences of human exploration of the coastal areas in America, which took place over several millennia” — said Anderson. “Scientists will never be able to make new archaeological discoveries in the coastal zone”, — he added.
