The so-called Moon Wobble effect is now concerning the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and other scientists. NASA is now working on a new statistical framework that predicts the upcoming floods’ seriousness in the next 60 years.

A full moon rises behind Glastonbury Tor as people gather to celebrate the summer solstice on June 20, 2016 in Somerset, England. Tonight’s strawberry moon, a name given to the full moon in June by Native Americans because it marks the beginning of strawberry picking season, last occurred on the solstice on June 22, 1967.
The rising sea levels are no longer new. Many countries are dealing with seasonal floods because of the continuous climate change problems.
NASA and other agencies have claimed that the floods will get worst by 2030 because of the Moon Wobble.
Moon Wobble 2030 Alarms NASA
According to CNET‘s latest report, the Moon Wobble is a slight change in the orbit of Earth’s natural satellite.
Although this is not a massive direction change, experts stated that the slight orbital shift of the moon will be strong enough in 2030 to cause major floods.

Rain begins to fall as the outer bands of Hurricane Florence make landfall in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina on September 13, 2018. – Hurricane Florence edged closer to the east coast of the Hurricane Florence edged closer to the east coast of the US Thursday, with tropical-force winds and rain already lashing barrier islands just off the North Carolina mainland.
“The combination of the moon’s gravitational pull, rising sea levels, and climate change will continue to exacerbate coastal flooding on our coastlines and across the world,” said NASA Administrator Bill Nelson.
Coastal Review reported that the Moon Wobble is a part of the 18.7-year moon nodal cycle. Researchers stated that this lunar cycle event would have two parts.
The first half will lead to lower sea levels. This means that there will be no massive floods during this period. But, the second half will be the opposite since it can lead to amplified tides (higher sea levels).
The second part of the 18.7-year lunar nodal cycle is estimated to happen around the mid-2030s.
New Framework Can Predict 60-Year Sea Level Scenarios
Bill Nelson said that the NASA Sea Level Change Team is now gathering crucial data to help them plan for the upcoming severe floods.
One of the efforts made by NASA is using the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s sea-level information, which offers flood thresholds and rising tides.
Using the information provided by NOAA, the international space union will create a new statistical framework that can predict flood scenarios over the next 60 years.
Once this new tech is completed, it can help NASA, NOAA, and other organizations know when and where floods will happen.
Meanwhile, the moon will be visited by the upcoming NASA Artemis I mission.
On the other hand, a high-speed space junk recently crashed on the moon’s far side.
