Researchers from the University of Hawai'i at Manoa have determined that twice the amount of land area previously thought vulnerable may be susceptible to the negative impacts of sea level rise in Hawai'i, including non-coastal areas which face flooding.
Scientists with the National and Regional Climate Adaptation Science Centers (CASCs) are actively working to understand and monitor climate change impacts on our coasts. Learn more with these 10 examples.
The Northwest CASC, EcoAdapt and Oregon State University recently partnered to assess the available science on climate adaptation actions that are commonly used in response to sea level rise by resource managers in Oregon and Washington.
Check out the October 2017 issue of the Pacific Pandanus newsletter (produced by the Pacific Islands CSC), which digs into two particular extremes many in the Pacific Basin have been facing recently: high temperatures and high seas.
Sea-level rise is resulting in chronic erosion on many Hawaiian beaches. Learn about research from the Pacific Islands CASC examining how beaches on the island of Kaua'i might change over the next century, as seas rise.
