A new platform developed by NASA called Sea Level Projection predicts the end of the Mexican coastline as we know it, including vacation spots like Acapulco, Cancun and Cabo San Lucas.
The application allows users to see projections of the rising sea level from 2020 to 2150, according to statistics and forecasts from the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, Entrepreneur Magazine reported.
When the Spanish publication of Entrepreneur looked up conservative scenarios for the year 2100 to see if there was not a greater melting of the poles, it instead found that Acapulco’s sea level will rise 1.16 meters. The business magazine also found that the coasts of Guerrero would be submerged 0.44 meters under the sea by 2050.
The tool allows users to explore how different processes affect sea level, such as melting ice sheets and glaciers and changing ocean circulation patterns.
