Coastal region threatened by rising sea level

By: P.T., STA

The expected rise in sea level in the coming decades could affect some 3,800 people living on the Slovenian coast, destroying fertile soil and flooding some nature reserves out of existence, a study by researchers the geography department of the Koper Faculty of Humanities has found.

Sea level in Slovenia has risen by 10 centimetres in the past 50 years with the rise in the past 20 years above European and global average. Scientists expect global sea level could rise by up to 100 centimetres by 2100.
