A group of Geophysicists announced the existence of a catastrophe that could affect more than 500 million people worldwide and which, until now, has had said little or nothing from it.
The victims of the event would be all those living in the vicinity of the river deltas, especially of large rivers such as the Nile, the Amazon, the Ganges and the Missisipi. The group of scientists is in charge of the investigation recreated in the laboratory a flood caused by global warming, projecting a major rivers overflow that would cause severe flooding
Team based their study on the hydrodynamic similarity principle, creating a model of flooding to analyze its mechanism and the factors that cause it, discovering that the increase in the level of the sea, in addition to the storms and human intervention, have caused the erosion of the flood and washout of the deltas.
The objective of the research is to warn of the dangers that would present the masses of water and help to take the necessary measures, in order to reduce the consequences of natural disasters and save millions of lives.
