Future coastal sea level rise

09 November 2016

If mid-century temperatures reach 2°C, global coastlines could rise by approximately 20 centimetres, but, due to global imbalances in ocean levels, 90% of coastal areas could experience even higher coastlines. And if temperatures rise by 5°C by 2100, as predicted by climate scenario RCP 8.5, coastlines could increase an average of 90 centimetres. Furthermore, an average of 80% of coastlines would...Continue
