Sea-rise - a threat to Mauritius

Beitragvon Klaus » Mo Sep 29, 2003 19:06

Scientists are unanimous that sea level is rising fast due to global warming and melting of ice caps. Low-coasts Islands will disappear from the world map in the not too distant future, and Mauritius will not be spared.
The consequences of accelerated sea level rise would be devastating to Mauritius, especially if combined with increased precipitation and stronger cyclones.

Hi Klaus!
Yes and I believe the government is aware about it.
There started to protect some beaches> with rocks and fence, as it gets taken from the beach. But all this I believe, will affect some beaches, but Mauritius want disappear from the map.
here is a link to the Mauritius Oceanorgraphie Institute http://moi.gov.mu/index.htm but i dont see anywhere, where there talk about it.
regards

Hi Stefan,

I did not want to say that the island disappear from the map…. at least not in the next 8 Mio years or so….. :roll:

But a recent report of the National Climate Committee speaks of the vulnerability and risks in the coastal zone. About 26.000 sq. metre of beaches will be flooded with sea-level rise of one metre in regions like Flic en Flac. There are many other regions which are projected to be most at risk from a rise in sea levels over the next few years.
