What is the impact of sea level rise in Japan? Expert: or sink into the sea, the probability is small!

Glacier melting

The topic of global warming has always been talked about by people. Because of the great impact of climate change on the world, more and more netizens began to join in the discussion. The most obvious impact of the greenhouse effect on the earth is nothing more than rising sea level and accelerated melting of glaciers.

If governance starts now, can these countries return to normal? How long will it take for the global temperature to return to normal? According to the prediction of scientists, the sea level will continue to rise and expand due to the difference of deep sea and surface water temperature, and the trend of frequent rise in at least several hundred years will not disappear at all.

At the same time, if we want to stop the greenhouse effect, it should take hundreds of years to end the expansion, when the global temperature and sea level will become more normal.


If one day, all the ancient glaciers in the Arctic and Antarctic will melt, sea level will rise by 66 meters, and more than half of the global islands will disappear. For example, Japan, the most iconic island country in the world, will also lose a large area of land.

What impact will the rising sea level caused by global warming have on Japan?

Japan will not be completely submerged

According to climatologists, global warming does have a corresponding impact on island countries like Japan and other similar countries. So far, the rate of global warming has made glaciers melt relatively slowly. Moreover, in cold places like Antarctica and the Arctic, glaciers melt in winter, which is not very dangerous, although the north and south poles have occasionally reached 2 in summer At the same time, due to the accumulation of time, there is a lot of melting snow in glaciers, and the rise of sea level leads to a great risk of inundation in low altitude areas of Japan, but there are still Highlands in the whole area of Japan, so it will not be completely inundated.

Japan in danger?


In fact, for Japan, the most dangerous thing is the change of geological structure caused by plate movement. After all, the earthquake in Japan has become a common thing in the eyes of many people. Moreover, because it is an island country, just on the edge of the Pacific plate, earthquake is common to Japan. If the aftershock causes a tsunami, it will be devastating to them It’s serious.

According to the findings of geographers, they claim that Japan is at the junction of the Pacific plate and the Asian plate. These two plates are moving every day, and it is undoubtedly very dangerous to squeeze each other. Therefore, if glaciers melt and sea level rise does not submerge Japan, then Japan is most likely to be dragged into the ground or squeezed out of the ground due to plate movement. At the same time, there is a lot of scientific research Evidence shows that Japan is in the sea area, because the geological structure is not as strong as the land due to the long-term immersion of sea water, so the plate compression will also cause land subsidence.

Geologists predict

Does that mean that Japan will no longer exist? Will Japan and other similar island countries disappear from the earth? Or will they all perish because of plate movement?


In fact, scientists are unable to draw a conclusion, because it takes time to prove all this, and some geologists also put forward their own views. Because the plate movement is extremely slow, there may be no Japan one day, but Japan still exists. In addition, some experts say that if there is fierce plate movement, including Earthquake and tsunami, then the Japanese and Japanese will disappear directly on the earth, if this happens, it is also a disaster.
