  • Global warming is causing rising sea levels

    Sea Erosion at Kadmat Beach Resort, Kadmat, Lakshadweep. The island chain of Lakshadweep has got total shore length of 132 Km.

    Global warming is causing rising sea levels
    ‘IPCC’s 5th Assessment Report and Implications for Policy and Decision Making’
    April 28, 2014 Lakshadweep Forum News, Kochi

    Sea-level rise is expected to be the most severe challenge to our economies and lives. The potential impacts of sea-level rise caused by warmer global temperatures are becoming clearer, according to the latest authoritative assessments from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

    The Fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change  shows that global emissions of greenhouse gases have risen to unprecedented levels despite a growing number of policies to reduce climate change. Emissions grew more quickly between 2000 and 2010 than in each of the three previous decades and sea-level rise can be expected to reach 28-61cm by 2100.

    Concluding four years of intense scientific collaboration by hundreds of authors from around the world, the 5th assessment report responds to the request of the world’s governments for a comprehensive, objective and policy neutral assessment of the current scientific knowledge on mitigating climate change.

    Ocean swell events that damage coral reefs, cause coastal erosion and inundate land will occur more frequently, especially during years with a strong El Nino, which will become more extreme. Up to 600 million coastal people around the globe could face devastating consequences from rising seas. Some small island states are at risk of disappearing.

    Adaptation to climate change and recovery costs associated with flood damage could reduce global GDP by up to 10 percent by 2100 if adaptation measures are not implemented. This is shown in a recent study, Coastal flood damage and adaptation costs under 21st century sea-level rise, by a group of researchers from Britain’s University of Southampton.

    How well coastal communities implement adaptation measures is found to be the most important factor in trying to limit the costs of sea-level rise.

    Kadmat island one among the Lakshadweep group of islands situated 407 kms. far from Kochi (Cochin), Kerala. The blue water lagoon is encircling the invaluable wealth of colourful corals, coral habitats, the reef banks, unspoilt virgin beaches, the sun and the moon!

    The most outstanding strength of Kadmat island lies in its marine wealth. Surrounded on the eastern and western side by large lagoons of spectacular beauty, long and sandy beaches that makes the place one of the ideal tourist destinations in the region. The coral reef, reef banks, seagrass and nesting ground for marine turtles etc all are very unique from an ecological perspective.

    Kadmat island is spindle shaped, broadest in the middle tapering towards the narrow strip at the southern end. One of the largest in Lakshadweep group, Kadmat is 8 Km long and 550 m wide at the broadest point. The major features associated with the island are reef flat, reef slope, lagoon, sandy beach and island vegetation.

    The lagoon is quite large and deep along the western side of the island with a narrow beach along the eastern side. The lagoon side of the shore is sandy beach, though at places, beach rock is exposed at the low tide mark. The depth of the lagoon varies from 2 to 3 m. The reef flat is about 50 m width and is totally exposed during the low tide. During the high tide, water exchange takes place between the lagoon and the open sea over the reef.

    Based on the ecological and economic value of this island, the Ministry of Environment and Forests and Union Territory of Lakshadweep Government have declared it as a marine protected area for preservation of these habitats and their resources.

    Kadmat reef has a high diversity with a total of 45 species of corals recorded during 1986.

    Tourism activities in the island is currently conducted in a controlled manner due to very low carrying capacity of the island and the fragility of the eco system. More over, the transport infrastructure making the accessibility very difficult.
