This figure appears in chapter executive-summary of the Climate Science Special Report: The Fourth National Climate Assessment: Volume I report.

Annual occurrences of tidal floods (days per year), also called sunny-day or nuisance flooding, have increased for some U.S. coastal cities. The figure shows historical exceedances (orange bars) for two of the locations—Charleston, SC and San Francisco, CA—and future projections through 2100. The projections are based upon the continuation of the historical trend (blue) and under median RCP2.6, 4.5 and 8.5 conditions. From Figure 12.5, Chapter 12.
