Who rescues pacific islands from global warming?

Vanuatu

In this part of the Pacific Ocean, the sea level rises about 7 millimeters per year. This is more than twice the world average of 3 millimeters per year.

It is difficult to say whether monster cyclone Pam is a direct result of climate change. What is certain, is that the condition of low-lying island nations in the Pacific Ocean is awkward.

Four days after cyclone ‘Pam’ hit Vanuatu, much remains unclear. About the damages, and the number of victims.

Fact is that in this part of the Pacific Ocean, the sea level rises about 7 millimeters per year. This is more than twice the world average of 3 millimeters per year. Read More

NASA Data will help forecasting Hurricanes

Climate change, sea level rising

Because of sea level rising, historical cities will be lost

Researchers of NASA are now able to simulate a heavy storm, typhoon or hurricane and help local authorities saving their people in an early stage.

The researchers used data, including temperature, pressure, humidity, wind speed and direction. With this model they can predict a disaster because of the climate change. Read More

Colombian institute Invemar started collaboration with Dutch engineers to combat coastal erosion

In order to protect the Colombian coast against erosion a team of Colombian and Dutch engineers have decided for beach nourishment.

A ‘sandy wall’ in front of the coast will protect the coastline between the mouth of the Río Magdalena river and the town of Ciénaga. By sand replenishment and especially natural forces such as wind and sea to do her job, a natural buffer in turn may arise.
