The \r\npanels show feet of sea level above 1992 levels at different tide gauge stations based on a) an 8 \r\ninch SLR and b) a 1.24 foot SLR by 2050. The flood level that has a 1% chance of occurring \r\nin any given year (“return level”) is similarly projected to differ by region as a result of varying \r\nstorm surge risk. Panel c) shows return levels for a 1.05 foot SLR above mean high tide by 2050. \r\nFinally, panel d) shows how a 1.05 foot SLR by 2050 could cause the level of flooding that \r\noccurs during today’s 100-year storm to occur more frequently by mid-century, in some regions \r\nas often as once a decade or even annually. (Figure source: replicated Tebaldi et al. \r\n2012 analysis with NCA sea level rise \r\nscenarios for panels a) and \r\nb); data/ensemble SLR projections used for panels c) and d) from Tebaldi et al. \r\n2012; all estimates include the effect of \r\nland subsidence)."^^xsd:string; dcterms:rights [ rdf:value "Copyright protected.
