Drought Is Causing Earth's Crust To Rise In The West

According to a study published Thursday, about 63 trillion gallons of water have been lost to drought in the western United States, enough to blanket the region with 4 inches of water, . Researchers at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California, San Diego, arrived at the conclusion by measuring the level of the earth's crust with a network of GPS stations that is normally used to predict earthquakes. When water is lost because of a lack of rain and snow, the earth's crust rises. The sensors show that the earth's crust has risen an average of 4 millimeters in the western United States since last year and as much as 15 millimeters in the California mountains.
