Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation: Sea Level Rise (August 2017)

 Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation: Sea Level Rise (August 2017)
As a result of climate change, the sea level will rise in two different ways: first by the melting of land-based glaciers, and second by the thermal expansion of the oceans. Additionally geologic forces cause land upwelling and subsidence. On top of the sea level rises, storms cause additional sea level surges, and as storm intensities increase, so also may storm surges. This second webinar of a four-part series will present the latest data from NOAA projecting sea level rises and strategies for estimating storm surges. The various adaptation approaches being used by different jurisdictions in the Hampton Roads Virginia area will also be presented.
