Contest Directions: Our thirst for drinking water is causing severe subsidence in many areas around the world, putting them at risk of flooding. But some communities are trying to solve the problem. From Miami to Jakarta, coastal communities around the world are battling the effects of sea level rise. But in some places, the problem is exacerbated by another phenomenon: the land is falling. The Indonesian capital, for example, is sinking up to 17cm (6.7 inches) per year. “That’s an issue, because they’re right at sea level,” says Michelle Sneed, a land subsidence specialist at the US Geological Survey (USGS). “They have this added pressure of increased flooding and sea level rise. They built seawalls. But the city is subsiding so quickly that, at high tides, water just pours over.”
Create images of land that has sunk! Show the effects of flooding due to the sea level rising! PLEASE NOTE: LIMIT 3 ENTRIES PER PLAYER. For more on this story Visit This Link
