Increased flooding from the Moon Wobble
Although it sounds like something new, the Wobble of the moon has been known for centuries, it is a regular cycle in the orbit of the moon that takes 18.6 years to complete and was discovered in 1728, in the middle of the tidal cycle. daily regular days of the land are suppressed, that is, high tides are lower than normal and low tides are higher than normal, that is, some compensate others and it is as if there are only several at sea level, without However, in the other half of the cycle the tides are amplified, the high tides are higher than normal, and the low tides are even lower.
The moon is currently part of its tidal amplification cycle, however what is gradually complicating things is the rise in sea level due to global warming, both factors are going to come together in the middle of the decade of the 1930s and we will find ourselves in a critical situation regarding the floods.
According to the nasa report, only the coasts of the far north including those of Alaska will be saved, at least for a decade or a little more, because those land areas are rising due to another type of geological process, a long-term process that involves the movement of tectonic plates.
Researchers who have conducted this study discovered these tipping points in the number of floods by studying among other things 89 locations of tide gauges in all states and coastal territories of the United States, except Alaska, they also created a statistical framework that mapped the scenarios of the increase. of the sea level and also the flood thresholds widely used by NOAA in addition to the number of times those thresholds have been exceeded annually, they added the astronomical cycles and also the statistical representations of other processes such as the events of the "child" that are knows affect the tides.
The result is this alert for the 1930s, Ven Hamlington of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Southern California is a co-author of the study and also leader of NASA's sea level change team, noted that The findings of the new study are a vital resource for coastal urban planners, so they can prepare for extreme events, said this expert, so we can take action, we can address this problem, but if we finally reach the 1930s Without action being taken and people having to suffer all the worst of the floods, I hope that the study will at least be remembered so that politicians don't put all the blame on the moon.
