According to the report of the science magazine National Geographic, if all the glaciers melt, Tekirdağ, Istanbul, Bursa, Izmit and Izmir will be flooded. National Geographic has mapped the areas that will be flooded when all the glaciers melt. Many coastal cities of Turkey, especially Istanbul, will become history.
SEA WATER LEVEL WILL RISE 65 METERS
The world's best-selling science magazine, National Geographic, investigated how the world map would change if all the glaciers on Earth melted. When all the glaciers melt due to global warming, the sea level will rise by about 65 meters. In this case, many peninsulas will become islands. While scientists predict that all glaciers will melt in 5 thousand years, the average temperature is expected to rise from 14.4 degrees to 26.6 degrees in this process.
3 COUNTRIES WILL DIE
In a study by National Geographic, all the lands of Denmark, the Netherlands and Belgium will be flooded when all the glaciers melt. It is predicted that the disaster, which will especially affect Northern Europe, will cause Turkey's coastline to be flooded.
PROVINCES TO BE AFFECTED IN TURKEY
A large part of Tekirdag, Istanbul and Bursa in the Marmara Region will be under water. While Izmit will be swallowed by the waters, Sinop, Samsun and Trabzon provinces along the Black Sea coastline will narrow inwards. The waters that swallowed Izmir in the Aegean Region will bury the Greek Islands in the sea. In the Mediterranean Region, the Çukurova delta in Adana will be completely submerged. Cyprus will lose 20 percent of its share from global warming, especially in low-lying areas.
