Southern beaches need protection from rising waters

Published fredag 15 december 2017 kl 09.00

Sweden’s shrinkin southern shorelines need to be saved with sand, according to researchers from Lund University.

They have calculated that 44 million cubic meters of sand are needed to protect Sweden’s southern coast as the world’s oceans rise due to global warming.

“It is no longer the case that the ocean gives and takes. We are now in a new period where the ocean takes and the ocean takes and the ocean takes. Everywhere,” Hans Hansson, a professor of water resource studies at Lund University, told Swedish Radio.
