Sea-level rise is one of the most certain impacts of climate change, and adds to storm risks. Recent projections suggest that sea-level will rise between 1 foot and 8.2 feet by 2100. Every coastal issue that Falmouth faces today will very likely get worse, and increase in extent and magnitude. Effective adaptation to rising sea level and storms will require changing approaches to coastal management.
