Excerpts;

Global sea level is rising at an accelerated rate in response to climate change, and to ensure a sustainable future, society must learn to anticipate and adapt to the dynamics of a rapidly evolving coastal system, according to a new article from the international coastal research community.

The article, “Coastal Processes and Environments Under Sea-Level Rise and Changing Climate: Science to Inform Management,” appears in the August edition of GSA Today, the monthly magazine of the Geological Society of America.

Eighty-four coastal and social scientists from 12 countries gathered for presentations aimed at synthesizing knowledge of the causes and impacts of sea-level rise, severe storms and other influences on coastal regions and to engage in discussion on how science can and should inform the public and policymakers about the realities of sea-level rise and coastal change…
