Book Summary:

Changes in sea level caused by global warming can be disastrous to modern civilization. Therefore, it is important to use accurate and reliable methods to monitor any change. During this century, and, in particular, the last three decades, tide-gauge records have been used to show these changes related to the world's oceans. Aubrey and Emery suggest, however, that tidal gauges should not be used unquestioningly as a benchmark for measuring eustatic sea-level changes. Tectonism, subsidence, ocean current variability, and human activity can, and do, affect the accuracy of these records. Understanding the reasons for changes in land and sea levels is essential for the proper development of coastal regions. The results of this study provide guiding data for scientific, engineering, and policy solutions to coastal flooding. Determining the true causes of relative subsidence, and how to use geological and oceanological controls, will allow us to exist within our natural environment, rather than force nature to conform to our legal and temporary 'remedies.'

Book Summary:

The fundamental point of this book is that, in the past, the world’s political, economic, military and social development took place during a time of relatively stable sea level. That time, however, is now over: The world must begin to cope with rising seas. This book is a wide-ranging introductory survey. It addresses global warming, the hydrologic cycle, why we should care about the rise of the oceans, storm surges and other extreme events, the changing seas and their shorelines, cities and countries of the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian ocean basins, the West Antarctic Ice Sheet and the Greenland Ice Sheet, case studies on how the Netherlands and the U.S. plan to cope with sea level rise, the likely impacts of this rise, getting to know the experts on sea level rise, and very long term prospects for the world’s shorelines.

Book Summary:

Earth's climate is changing, with new and frightening results. One of the most severe issues is the rise in sea levels. All over the world, island nations are disappearing, coastal areas are flooding, and habitats are washing away. This book explores the causes of global warming and how they are affecting plants, animals, and people all over the world. The text also explores possible solutions, from planting living shorelines to controlling the seas with walls and gates. What do rising sea levels mean for Earth? It's all here in this comprehensive look at a twenty-first-century problem.

Book Summary:

The world’s oceans have been slowly rising for many years because of factors related to global warming, this poses future threats of sea water surging into coastal cities, leading to devastating flooding and catastrophic water damage. Currently, there are 643 million people around the world living in low-lying coastal areas at risk from climate change-related flooding. Readers are provided with outlines of current research to adapt to these new challenges, including new flood-control infrastructures and technologies. Efforts to slow the process of global warming are also investigated. What you as an individual, community member, and citizen of the world can do to help reverse everyday habits and practices that have resulted in global climate change is revealed.
