Coastal Erosion

Background

The Maldives is a low-lying island nation in the Indian Ocean. The country is particularly vulnerable to sea-level rise and coastal erosion due to its low elevation, making it one of the highest risk countries impacted by climate change.

The Noonu Atoll, is in the northern part of the Maldives. This chain of islands has experienced land subsidence, which is believed to be linked to both natural and human-caused factors.

Insights

Subsidence trends in the northern section of islands can be attributed to erosion. Uplift trends in the southern islands can be attributed to sediment deposition.

KorrAI’s InSAR data can be utilized to model sediment transport and directly assess the impact of engineered structures to control sediment recharge
