sea level rise
The frequency of flooding is expected to substantially increase over the 21st century in coastal California due to heavier rainfall from warming-induced intensification of the hydrologic cycle, sea-level rise, and storm surge.
Even if the world stopped emitting greenhouse gases today, global sea levels would continue to rise by about 3.6 feet by the year 3000, according to a recently published study in Environmental Research Letters.
Three new studies assess predicted sea level rise both locally—U.S. west and east coasts—and globally.
About 42 percent of the observed sea-level rise between 1961 and 2003, or about 0.03 inches per year, were from sources other than thermal expansion and melting glaciers and ice sheets, according to a new study in Nature Geoscience.
Over 3 million people in the U.S. could face the threat of sea level rise within the next century, according to a new study in Environmental Research Letters.
A new study published in PLoS ONE by USGS scientists and other colleagues investigates the likely impacts of climate change on the biology, geography, and water supplies of California’s San Francisco Bay-Delta-River System.
The San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission proposed an amendment to its original climate change bay plan.
