Coasts In Times of Sea-Level Rise
Around the world, sea levels are rising in response to warming oceans, melting glaciers, and shrinking ice sheets – and even faster rise is projected in the coming century. In this talk, Professor Robert Kopp, Lab co-director, and director of the Institute of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences at Rutgers University, explores the forces driving sea-level rise, insights into future changes from the geological record of past changes, and implications for the future risks of flooding along the shore.
