Rising tides USA


A report led by the US National Oceanic and Atmospheri­c Administra­tion warns that the country should expect to experience as much sea-level rise by the year 2050 as it has witnessed in the previous 100 years. The Sea Level Rise Technical Report provides the most up-to-date sea-level rise projection­s for all US states and territorie­s by decade for the next 100 years and beyond, based on a combinatio­n of tide-gauge and satellite observatio­ns, and IPCC modelling. The report projects that sea levels along the coastline will rise an additional 25–30 centimetre­s by 2050, with specific amounts varying regionally, mainly due to land-height changes.
