Earth’s Axis Shift Due To Climate Change

Earth’s Axis Shift Due To Climate Change

✅A study published in Geophysical Research Letters of the American Geophysical Union (AGU) says that due to the significant melting of glaciers because of global temperature rise, the planet’s axis of rotation has been moving more than usual since the 1990s

✅This has caused the Earth’s poles to move in new directions

✅North pole has shifted in a new eastward direction since the 1990s because of changes in the hydrosphere.

✅In the last four decades, the poles moved by about 4 metres in distance

✅The calculations were based on satellite data from NASA’s Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) mission as well as estimates of glacier loss and groundwater
pumping going back to the 1980s, according to Science Alert

Other Possible Reasons👇

✅Terrestrial water storage or change in non-glacial regions due to climate change

✅Unsustainable consumption of groundwater for irrigation and other anthropogenic activities.
