Global sea level is rising and it is rising faster than it has in the past. Sea level rise will impact the coast in many different ways, affecting and transforming coastal communities, beaches, low-lying areas, wetlands, estuaries, aquifers and coastal development and infrastructure. The goal of this forum is to increase people’s fundamental understanding of this phenomenon, discuss how coastal communities can adapt, identify tools and resources for local governments to prepare, and highlight ongoing research that can support the work of coastal managers and decision-makers.
