Sea level rise related to climate change is a key driver of the increasing frequency of coastal flooding.
  2. Nearly every site measured has experienced an increase in coastal flooding since the s (see Figure 1). The rate is accelerating in many locations along the East and Gulf Coasts (see Figure 2). The Mid-Atlantic region suffers the highest number of coastal flood days and has also experienced the largest increases in flooding.
