Mitchum, 2018: Climatechange-driven accelerated sea-level rise
detected in the altimeter era.
These hot spots are areas of accelerated sea-level rise
that typically last about three to five years, (http://news.ufl.edu/articles/2017/08/east-coasts-rapidly-rising-seas-explained.php) says a release from UF .
05 ( ANI ): Scientists have revealed that accelerated sea-level rise
will increase the flooding and property damage triggered by tropical cyclones.
Another group of 27 American and European scientists designates 350 ppm as a "planetary boundary" known, when transgressed, to increase "the risk of irreversible change in the loss of major ice sheets, accelerated sea-level rise
and abrupt shifts in forest and agricultural systems." Glaciers are disappearing at alarming rates.
1 priority for Louisiana should be to combat global warming and accelerated sea-level rise
The looming possibility of both accelerated sea-level rise
and more frequent large hurricanes poses an unprecedented threat and multiplies the unpredictability of coastal risks.
Although actions such as beach nourishment or hard stabilization provide a degree of mitigation, they are costly and will become prohibitively expensive for most areas in the coming decades because of accelerated sea-level rise
, Leatherman and Burkett Predict.
This accelerated sea-level rise
is thought to be linked mainly to the "El Nino" weather phenomenon, which has become markedly more frequent and intense over the past two decades.
Accelerated sea-level rise, like global warming, represents an environmental threat of unprecedented proportion.
But the prospect of accelerated sea-level rise implies that maintaining this level of safety may require additional investments of up to $10 billion by 2040.
Taking action now to safeguard coastal areas will have immediate benefits while preventing losses from soaring higher in the event of an accelerated sea-level rise. Limiting coastal development is a first step, although strategies to accomplish this will differ in every country.
