Sea-level rise exponentially increases coastal flood frequency
Description: "Sea-level rise will radically redefine the coastline of the 21st century. For many coastal regions, projections of global sea-level rise by the year 2100 (e.g., 0.5-2 meters) are comparable in magnitude to today's extreme but short-lived increases in wat

Adapting to Rising Tides Bay Area: Regional Sea Level Rise Vulnerability and Adaptation Study
Description: Using a projected 48 inches of sea level rise (which could arrive between 2060 and 2120), this report outlines vulnerabilities and adaptation measures for the Bay Area. The report is arranged by theme (such as transportation networks, vulnerable communit

Climate Change Evidence and Causes: Update 2020
Description: "Climate change is one of the defining issues of our time. It is now more certain than ever, based on many lines of evidence, that humans are changing Earth's climate. The Royal Society and the US National Academy of Sciences, with their similar missions

Modeling Floodplain Inundation, Circulation, and Residence Time Under Changing Tide and Sea Levels
Description: "Sea-level rise will have unknown effects on the structure and function of valuable tidal freshwater floodplains. One reason for this knowledge gap is our poor constraint on the physical controls on complex floodplain inundation and circulation processes.

Effects of Elevated Sea Levels and Waves on Southern California Estuaries During the 2015-2016 El Nino
Description: "The 2015-2016 El Nino provided insight into how low-inflow estuaries might respond to future climate regimes, including high sea levels and more intense waves. High waves and water levels coupled with low rainfall along the Southern California coastline

Preparing for Rising Seas: How the State Can Help Support Local Coastal Adaptation Efforts
Description: Summary: "Important for coastal communities to begin preparing for sea-level rise (SLR). California faces the threat of extensive and expensive SLR impacts. Most responsibility for SLA preparation lies with local governments. However, the state has a ve

Sea-level-rise-induced threats depend on the size of tide-influenced estuaries worldwide
Description: "The effects of sea-level rise on the future morphological functioning of estuaries are largely unknown because tidal amplitudes will change due to combined deepening of the estuary mouth and shifting amphidromic points at sea. Fluvial sediment supply is

New elevation data triple estimates of global vulnerability to sea-level rise and coastal flooding
Description: "Most estimates of global mean sea-level rise this century fall below 2 m. This quantity is comparable to the positive vertical bias of the principle digital elevation model (DEM) used to assess global and national population exposures to extreme coastal
