It could be generally known as ‘The Floating City’, however specialists have warned that Venice might sink in as little as 100 years because of climate change.
They are saying that Venice and far of Italy’s Adriatic coastline is at risk of disappearing all collectively as sea ranges continue to rise.
The Mediterranean will rise by as much as 5 ft (140cm) earlier than 2100, in line with scientists from Italy and France.
As compared, the ocean level has risen by only one foot (30cm) within the last 1,000 years.
The researchers, from Italy’s National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology, mentioned the acceleration in sea level rise might be defined by world warming, in accordance with The Local.
To know how sea ranges have modified, the scientists studied millstone quarries alongside the Mediterranean coastline.
‘The coast of the Mediterranean gives a number of remnants of historical coastal quarries, which at the moment are helpful to check sea level change occurring over the past millennia,’ the scientists mentioned in a behindysis paper.
‘Millstones quarries have been exploited with similar quarrying methods from rocks like beachrocks, sandstones or comparable lithologies, have been formed to be appropriate to grind olives, seeds and wheat, to supply oil and flour, or to interrupt aside delicate rocks.’
