The study of the lead author and the associated professor in oceanic and atmospheric sciences at the Colorado University at Boulder (US), Weiqing Han said that the human-made greenhouse gases are responsible for the Global Warming. The Global Warming is now affecting the levels of the sea. The level of Indian Ocean is also increasing, which may bring worst condition for lives in both India and Bangladesh and may cause massive flood during monsoons. The Indian Ocean is the world’s third largest ocean. The changes in climate also increase the sea levels of the Arabian Sea, Sumatra, coastlines of the Bay of Bengal, and Java.
The professor Weiqing Han said, “Our results from this study imply that if future anthropogenic warming effects in the Indo-Pacific warm pool dominate natural variability, mid-ocean islands such as the Mascarenhas Archipelago, coasts of Indonesia, Sumatra and the north Indian Ocean may experience significantly more sea level rise than the global average.” He also said, “It is important for us to understand the regional changes of the sea level, which will have effects on coastal and island regions.”
The study shows that the Zenzibar off Tanzania’s coastline and Saychelles Island indicate the largest sea level drop. In past 50 years, the pool of oceans also heated by 0.5 degree Celsius or 1 degree Fahrenheit. A writer said, “Our new results show that human-caused changes of atmospheric and oceanic circulation over the Indian Ocean region are the major cause for the regional variability of sea level change.” According to the research, on the coast of the northern Indian Ocean the sea level also has risen up to 0.5 inches or 13 mm daily. The heavy rainfall may possible at the eastern tropical region of the Indian Ocean whereas the western equatorial region of the Indian Ocean may face the increment in drought.
