Future sea-level rise projections for tide gauge locations in South Asia

Updated Date: 12/14/2021 4:40:57 PM

Local projections of future sea-level change are important for understanding climate change risks and informing coastal management decisions. Reliable and relevant coastal risk information is especially important in South Asia, where large populations live in low-lying areas and are at risk from coastal inundation. A new set of local sea-level projections for selected tide gauge locations in South Asia have been produced over the 21st century under the RCP2.6, RCP4.5 and RCP8.5 scenarios by the UK Met Office for the Asia Regional Resilience to a Changing Climate Programme.
