From 1932 to 2016, the United States lost more than 3,200 sq. km of land.

The coast in the Gulf of Mexico is changing dramatically. Scientists from Tulane University say it will affect the territory of the United States and Mexico. The results of the observations were cited by Nature Communications.

According to experts, sea levels in the region are rising by about one centimeter per year. They reached these conclusions by comparing satellite and field measurements between 1900 and 2021.

But most of all, scientists have noted the record rate of sea level rise over the past 12 years.

“Significant coastal erosion was recorded in the area from Cape Hatteras in North Carolina to the Gulf of Mexico. In this location the highest rate was observed. The only explanation for the negative trend could be an anthropogenic factor. In the region, there is a certain correlation of sea level rise with corresponding rates of global warming The trend poses the greatest risk to two states, Louisiana and Texas. Sea level rise has affected the loading process on vulnerable coasts, “where the earth is already under water,” the scientists said.

At the same time, according to data from the Geological Survey, the United States lost more than 3,200 square kilometers between 1932 and 2016. km of land.

In particular, the territory of Texas is also disappearing at an enormous rate, losing about a meter per year.

It will be recalled that last year the temperature of the oceans rose to a record level, which led to extremely hot weather.
