Sea Level Rise Is Accelerating: 4 Inches or More Per Decade by 2100

This article points out how fast sea level rise is occurring. It’s not good for coastal communities. Satellite data confirms what computer models have warned for years – oceans are rising faster as the planet warms. That means more flooding. Satellite data confirms what computer models have warned about for years – oceans are rising faster as the planet warms, and coastal communities face increasing flood risk.

Scientists have been warning about this speed-up for many years based on computer climate simulations. A new study released Monday confirms the modeled trend with a detailed analysis of satellite observations spanning a quarter of a century.
