Sea level rise with respect to other causes of coastal erosion: examples in the Pacific

Abstract : Sea level changes show significant regional variability due to variations in ocean temperature. In some oceanic regions, sea level has risen quicker than the global average. However, we show from some examples in the Pacific Ocean that even in those case, shoreline changes are often still controlled by other factors such as waves, extreme events or direct and indirect anthropogenic actions. This statement favors adaptation strategies that focus initially on reducing vulnerability to current hazards such as temporary flooding. This study was carried out in the framework of the CECILE project, which is supported by the French Agency for Research (ANR).
