In recent decades, glaciers at the poles and in the mountainous regions have been melting heavily. Therefore, by 2050, ocean levels will rise significantly.

Early forecasts of NASA scientists estimate that about 80 million people will be around the world affected. Their coastal cities and towns will be flooded.

New research shows that these forecasts are wrong and that the water will “hide” far more territories, depriving more than 300 million people of their homes.

According to scientists from the nonprofit organization Climate Central, published their report in a journal Nature Communications, the new data they received looks shocking.

Scientists have received this information by carefully evaluating the topography of coastlines around the world. Previous models used satellite imagery where height was miscalculated due to tall buildings and trees.

To date, the largest changes have taken place in the Asian region. According to new data, it turns out that almost all (!) Vietnam will be underwater.
