Sea Level Rise and Coastal Infrastructure: Prediction, Risks, and Solutions analyzes the challenges posed by rising sea levels and climate change. Scientists estimate that global sea levels could rise by as much as 20 feet in this century, directly affecting about 100 million people worldwide. Although the problems stemming from higher sea levels are formidable, immediate actions can be identified and executed to lessen the impact of rising waters on coastal infrastructure and communities. Using a risk analysis and management framework, each chapter in this volume focuses on a facet of sea level rise, examining its associated risks and assessing its socioeconomic impact. From this information, appropriate long-term measures and mitigation strategies can be developed. Chapters consider such questions as: How can we model the impact of rising sea levels and increasingly intense tropical storms on coastal infrastructure? What strategies can be phased in to improve new construction? How can existing infrastructure best be targeted for retrofitting? How can risk models be designed to accommodate regional socioeconomic considerations? Engineers, scientists, and policymakers concerned with planning, design, and construction of coastal infrastructure will find this compact assessment useful, relevant, and thought-provoking.
