Experts drew attention to the costs and damages that may occur after the desalination method will be used to make seawater drinkable given the looming drought threats triggered by climate change.
Scientific and Technological Research Council of Türkiye (TÜBITAK) Marmara Research Center (MAM) Polar Research Institute General Director professor Burcu Özsoy regarding the changes they observed in Antarctica, said:
“We see that terrestrial glaciers have severely separated from the mainland and integrated into the ocean. However, terrestrial ice also poses a great risk as it has the potential to increase sea levels.”
Sea levels can rise by two different mechanisms due to climate change. First, as the oceans warm because of an increasing global temperature, seawater expands taking up more space in the ocean basin and causing a rise in water level. The second mechanism is the melting of ice over land, which then adds water to the ocean.
The drying up of lakes and other sources of fresh water in Türkiye has raised concerns as the country has started receiving alarms for a severe drought while planning for desalination of seawater is under consideration.
