Systems Installed to Monitor Caspian Sea Waterline

Three digital water level measurement stations were installed in Noshahr Bay, Amir Abad and Anzali Port in northern Iran on Sunday to keep a close watch on the Caspian Sea's fluctuations and its predicted progression toward the shores.  
The Caspian Sea waterline is predicted to rise up to 42cm over the next three years, leading to the coastward progression of seawater and a change in the shape of the coastline, an official at Water Research Institute said.
According to Daryoush Yousefi Kebria, head of Caspian Sea National Research Center at the institute, water will most probably advance up to 15 meters toward the shoreline, as it last happened in 1995, IRNA reported.
The sea's water level has been stable over the past two years after a long period of steady retreat by up to 130 centimeters.
