Una nueva investigación llevada a cabo por geólogos de la Universidad de Vermont y el Servicio Geológico de EE.UU. estableció que la tierra en la región de de la Bahía de Chesapeake se está hundiendo. Parte de este hundimiento, según los investigadores, puede extenderse hasta la capital, Washington DC, la cual se hunde de dos a tres centímetros y que podría llegar a hundirse hasta 15 centímetros, en los próximos 100 años.

Según el comunicado del estudio, la situación es alarmante ya que la zona se hunde más del doble de rápido, que el resto de la Costa Este. Los geólogos advierten que para el año 2100, Washington se habrá hundido 15 centímetros.

La razón por la cual sucede esto, según los expertos, es por el derretimiento de capas de hielo prehistóricas que incrementaron el nivel del agua en Long Island, Nueva York, ocasionando que la región de la Bahía de Chesapeake ascienda.

“Es irónico que la capital de la nación – una de las menos responsables de los daños del cambio climático – se encuentre en uno de los peores lugares”, aseguró el geólogo Paul Bierman.
