Accurately determining the risks of rising sea level

Marbaix, Philippe and Nicholls, Robert J. (2007) Accurately determining the risks of rising sea level Geographical Journal, 88, (43), pp. 441-442. (doi:10.1029/2007EO430002).

With the highest density of people and the greatest concentration of economic activity located in the coastal regions, sea level rise is an important concern as the climate continues to warm. Subsequent flooding may potentially disrupt industries, populations, and livelihoods, particularly in the long term if the climate is not quickly stabilized [McGranahan et al., 2007; Tol et al., 2006]. To help policy makers understand these risks, a more accurate description of hazards posed by rising sea levels is needed at the global scale, even though the impacts in specific regions are better known.
