Chances in Sea LeveL
The phenomenon In the changes in
the level of the sea is one which is
well shown in the case of the Mediter
ranean. M. Ph. Negris. in a recent
brochure presented to the Academy of
Sciences, furnishes us interesting in
formation on this point, it being appar
ent that the sea has greatly increased
in depth as compared to ancient times.
Formerly a bridge 3000 feet long united
Leucade to the continent. To-day it
is submerged, but the foundations of
the work were . discovered eleven feat
beneath the surface. It may therefore
be concluded that since the construc
tion of the bridge the sea has risen at
this point over nine feet. At Itea,
in the bay of Amphlssa. there has been
observed a mole that ia also over nine
feet beneath the surface. At Rhenee
there has been found a completely sub
merged dock, evidently of Roman con
struction, the depth of the sea above
the dock at places being fully nine feet.
From all of these facts one may con
dude, that there has taken place an
important increase in the depth of the
sea since the Roman period, the Medi
terranean having risen at least nine
feet in about two thousand years. — New
