The study shows that with higher sea level, fewer additional factors are needed to cause episodes of coastal flooding.
A new study is among the first to use statistical data and modeling to determine the causes of sea-level rise on the Northeast U.S. coast.
NASA Sea Level Change Team member Robert Kopp uses data on past sea-level rise to improve forecasts of what's to come – and to help coastal planners prepare.
The researchers shared their latest findings, and discussed how to make sea-level science more useful to planners and others preparing for changes on the U.S. coast.
To better predict changes in Antarctica's Thwaites Glacier, sea-level scientists turn their focus to the bedrock beneath.
