Annual Vehicle-Hours of Delay Due to High Tide Flooding
Figure 12.2Center for American Progress, Harvard University
This figure appears in chapter 12 of the Impacts, Risks, and Adaptation in the United States: The Fourth National Climate Assessment, Volume II report.
The figure shows annual vehicle-hours of delay for major roads (principal arterials, minor arterials, and major collectors) due to high tide flooding by state, year, and sea level rise scenario (from Sweet et al. 2017).3bae2310-7572-47e2-99a4-9e4276764934 Years are shown using decadal average (10-year) values (that is, 2020 is 2016–2025), except 2100, which is a 5-year average (2096–2100). One vehicle-hour of delay is equivalent to one vehicle delayed for one hour.
