Extreme Sea-Level Days: Honolulu, Hawaii

Extreme Sea-Level Days: Honolulu, Hawaii

Sea-level rise will result in permanent land loss and reductions in freshwater supplies, as well as threaten coastal ecosystems. “Extreme” sea-level days (with a daily average of more than 6 inches above the long-term average1) can result from the combined effects of gradual sea-level rise due to warming and other phenomena, including seasonal heating and high tides.  Image Reference: Firing and Merrifield2
