Sinking Islands

An Australian study says that sinking caused by seismic activity around some Pacific islands may pose a greater threat to their survival than rising sea levels.

Researchers from the University of Newcastle found that sea levels around American Samoa rose at five times the global average due to the sinking effect brought on by 2009 Samoa-Tonga earthquakes.

They found the predicted subsidence is as much, if not more, than the official U.N. climate panel’s projected sea rise from man-made climate change. Other countries, such as Japan and New Zealand, may see their land areas rise, mitigating rising sea levels in those locations.
