A long-standing territorial dispute between Bangladesh and India over a small island in the Bay of Bengal has been resolved-by a rise in sea level. The uninhabited territory, known to the Indians as New Moore Island and to the Bangladeshis as South Talpatti Island, never extended more than six feet (1.9 m) above seal level. However, satellite images show that the sea has recently submerged it. "What these two countries could not achieve from years of talking has been resolved by global warming," says Professor Sugata Hazra, of Calcutta's Jadavpur University School of Oceanographic Studies.
