NASA Predicts Flooding in 2030 Due to Moon’s Wobble

The ‘Wobble‘ in the Moon’s orbit lasts for almost 18.6 years, during which there is a tide-strengthening phase, which increases the disturbing after-effect of the high tides. According to NASA, this process is expected to occur in the mid-2030s and has been joined with the rising sea level and could lead to more irritation due to floods.

Climate change has triggered sudden weather changes on Earth, which has led to a flood in many countries, especially in the United States. But now, a new study has related the dangerous weather events along with Earth’s neighbor, the Moon.National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) says that a ‘Wobble‘ present in the Moon’s orbit is combined with the rising sea levels due to climate change, and it will probably lead to disturbing floods on Earth.

The study got published in the Nature Climate Change journal on June 21, 2021.These are called ‘nuisance floods’; they currently occur in the coastal areas when the tide tends to reach about 2 feet above the average high tide.These events are much more challenging for businesses because they engulf the streets and homes and ultimately affect their everyday life.

These nuisance floods will become even more frequent by the mid-2030s, according to the study of NASA. A majority of areas in the US coastline will see a 3 to 4 times increase in the high tides for a decade at least, according to the study.
