Sea-Level Rise, Extreme Water Levels, and Coastal Erosion ... How bad could it possibly be?

  • Sea-level rise represents an unprecedented civil engineering challenge.
  • Small amounts of sea-level rise can disproportionately increase the frequency of coastal flooding. 
  • One-third to two-thirds of the beaches in Southern California may disappear by 2100 under sea-level rise of 1-2 meters.
  • A combination of satellite observations and modeling will help to understand and predict coastal change.
