Publisher: Penguin Publishing Group
Read The Rising Sea by Clive Cussler with Rakuten Kobo. Core samples, tide gauge readings, and, most recently, satellite measurements tell us that over the past century, the Global Mean Sea Level (GMSL) has risen by 4 to 8 inches (10 to 20 centimeters). Graphs showing sea level change from 1870 to present, derived from tide gauge and satellite data. Federal gauges stationed around the state's coast document the slowly rising water. It's the thrilling new NUMA Files novel from the number-one New York Times best-selling grand master of adventure. The coast of Yorkshire's East Riding faces the fastest coastal erosion in Europe, presently accelerated by the rising sea level. What are the causes and what are some of the implications of such a loss? Everywhere, the waters are rising - and that is just the beginning of the world's peril, unless the NUMA crew can beat the clock. Over the decades, tens of villages have disappeared into the sea.
