Sea Level to Plummet Over the Eons

In the short run, over the next century, global warming stoked by the flames of industry will force sea levels to rise two feet, according to a recent UN report.

But in the long run, sea levels will almost certainly plummet. A lot. According to
recent research reported by Australia's ABC, sea levels will crash 393 feet over the next 80 million years. That's about .0005 inches per century.

If sea levels suddenly dropped 393 feet, Siberia would again be connected to Alaska, and the UK would be connected to Europe. According to predictions, the Atlantic will broaden, but the Pacific will shrink.

No, water isn't slowly evaporating into space; the ocean is getting deeper as the planet matures and mid-ocean ridges are replaced by deep-ocean plains. So far, ocean levels have dropped 557 feet since the Cretaceous period, about 80 million years ago.

About Me

My photo
I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
