Glaciers melting in Alaska will create a huge tsunami next year

An imbalanced mountain slope has been detected in the state of Alaska, USA, in Achorage, the northernmost city of the country, that can trigger a devastating tsunami in the very near future.

In a letter signed by 14 scientists, it was warned that only a third of the slope slope supported by Barry glacier due to climate change is preserved, and that earthquake, heat wave or heavy rain can cause a serious disaster in the region.

Located 60 miles east of Anchorage, Prince William Sound is a port area and part of the Trans-Alaska Pipeline System.


Steve Masterman, director of the Geological Research Division, said that the rapid retreat of the Barry Glacier could drop millions of tons of rock into the port in question, and the most violent tsunami disaster recorded by the state.


“The most remarkable of these tsunamis struck Glacier Bay across the Lituya Bay Fjord in 1958, with a wave height of 1700 meters, Masterman said. In 2015, the waves rose 600 meters with the melting of Taan Glacier of Southeast Alaska in 2015 ”.

Experts worry that the slope is gradually decreasing in Anchorage and it can turn into a fast-moving landslide at any time.

Climate change can also be a huge player in this catastrophe event, because the northern part of the world warms up twice faster than elsewhere and causes several glaciers to melt.


The researchers said, “We have only preliminary results showing the potential spread of the tsunami. The effects will be particularly severe where the landslide touches Barry’s glacier water. In addition, shallow water areas or low land near the shore will increase the impact of the incident and create a great danger for thousands of fishermen and harbor workers in the region ”.

Scientists pointed out that a landslide tsunami could occur very soon, including next year.
