A new study published in the journal Nature Climate Change forecasts that half of the world's sandy beaches will disappear by 2100. Thanks to erosion, sandy beaches are in danger of being submerged. Scientists used satellite data from the past 30 years to forecast future changes in the landscape. The extent of the damage depends on the extent of global warming and the final temperature increases as time goes along. Higher temperatures lead to higher seas and more intense storms, which affect beaches.
