Sea level rise submerges five Somolon Islands

Solomon Islands: five islands have been submerged since 1947

Five Pacific Ocean islands have been swallowed by the sea due to high wave energy and sea level rise. since 1947.

The Solomon Islands comprise of nearly 1,000 small islands. They are home to roughly 560,000 people but soon they will be at the hands of climate change. In other words, many small islands may disappear from the map in the next decades.

Australian researchers analyzed satellite images and confirmed that five vegetated reef islands - Kale, Rapita, Rehana, Kakatina, and Zollies - have already been wiped out due to rising waters and erosion. These tiny islands were not inhabited by Solomon Islanders.
