Rise of Sea Levels Along the US Southeast and Gulf Coasts Have Been Rapidly Accelerating

From a story on futurity.org by Barri Bronston headlined “Rates of U.S. Coastal Sea Level Rise Break Records”:

Sea levels along the US Southeast and Gulf coasts have been rapidly accelerating, reaching record-breaking rates over the past 12 years, according to a new study.

The researchers say they have detected rates of sea-level rise of about a half an inch per year since 2010. They attribute the acceleration to the compounding effects of man-made climate change and natural climate variability.
