Rising sea levels and shoreline retreat set to increase flood risk

Sea level rise and shoreline retreat are the two key factors predicted to cause an increase in flood risk in the future.

A new review of relevant science on climate change by Virginia Tech University and Columbia University found that a rising sea level will have a profound effect on changing coastlines, resulting in an increase of flooding from tropical cyclones.

Climate change was also found to explain 35-45% of tropical cyclone activity over the period on historical record.
