An unprecedented water receding event took place in Dubrovnik, Croatia on March 29, 2021. Scientists associate this phenomenon with a rare occurrence…
And suddenly the water disappeared in Dubrovnik, surprising many beachgoers and residents of the ancient city on the Adriatic Sea in southern Croatia.
‘Where did the water all go?‘, ‘Do we have to fear a tsunami?’ and ‘Is this normal?‘ asked many local eyewitnesses…
They probably recalled the 1667 devastating earthquake that destroyed the entire city.
Similar low tides were recorded across the Nin lagoon, one of the largest in Croatia. In the area, the low tide was so large that some islands could be reached by foot. The sea has disappeared completely… the sea became land:
And in Split too:
According to scientists, this phenomenon has never occurred along the coast of Croatia.
The disappearing water event has been associated to the full moon and a small amount of precipitation, which in combination leads to the largest oscillations in the ebb tide.
Using satellite data on how water moves around Earth, NASA scientists have been able to find out exactly how and why does the Earth wobble.
When the Earth rotates on its spin axis — an imaginary line that passes through the North and South Poles — it drifts and wobbles. These spin-axis movements are called “polar motion” in scientific parlance.
NASA scientists have computed that the measurements for the 20th century show that the spin axis drifted about 4 inches (10 centimeters) per year. Over the course of a century, that becomes more than 11 yards (10 meters).
NASA scientists have broadly categorized three processes that are responsible for this drifting if the earth. The three processes are: contemporary mass loss, glacial rebound, and mantle convection. [Surviving the poleshift, Facebook, vecernji, net, GeoSpacialWorld]
