Effective inundation of continental United States communities with 21st century sea level rise
Description: "Recurrent, tidally driven coastal flooding is one of the most visible signs of sea level rise. Recent studies have shown that such flooding will become more frequent and extensive as sea level continues to rise, potentially altering the landscape and liv

When Rising Seas Hit Home: Hard Choices Ahead for Hundreds of US Coastal Communities
Description: "This national analysis identifies when US coastal communities will face a level of disruptive flooding that affects people's homes, daily routines, and livelihoods. It identifies hundreds of communities that will face chronic inundation and possible retr

California from drought to deluge
Description: "The dramatic switch from extreme drought to severe flooding in California, and the accompanying flip from atmospheric ridge to trough in the northeastern Pacific, exemplifies the pathways to an intensified water cycle under a warming climate." (Wang, S.-

The Governance Gap: Climate Adaptation and Sea-Level Rise in the San Francisco Bay Area
Description: "While most stakeholders recognize the risk of sea-level rise and other climate impacts, and have good ideas about potential on-the-ground solutions, realizing these solutions requires overcoming a series of governance challenges. All of these governance

40+ Years of Wetland Restoration in the San Francisco Bay: Lessons Learned and Future Directions
Description: "How do you design a good habitat restoration project in San Francisco Bay? What have we learned from the last 40 years of restoration experience? And how do restoration designs need to change in the future, as we face sea level rise and declining sedimen

Amplification of flood frequencies with local sea level rise and emerging flood regimes
Description: "The amplification of flood frequencies by sea level rise (SLR) is expected to become one of the most economically damaging impacts of climate change for many coastal locations. Understanding the magnitude and pattern by which the frequency of current flo

Doubling of coastal flooding frequency within decades due to sea-level rise
Description: "Global climate change drives sea-level rise, increasing the frequency of coastal flooding. In most coastal regions, the amount of sea-level rise occurring over years to decades is significantly smaller than normal ocean-level fluctuations caused by tides

Sources and implications of deep uncertainties surrounding sea-level projections
Description: "Long-term flood risk management often relies on future sea-level projections. Projected uncertainty ranges are however widely divergent as a result of different methodological choices. The IPCC has condensed this deep uncertainty into a single uncertaint
