California Faces Higher Than Average Sea Level Rise

 

According to a report by the National Academy of Science´s research unit, California will see a greater rise in sea level than other states on the West Coast.

The polar ice-cap melting is speeding up sea level rise around the world. The area south of Cape Mendocino is more affected than the north of it because "geological forces to the north are pushing the land up".

Sea levels along the California coast could rise anywhere from 1.5 inches to a foot by 2030. A major earthquake could also cause a sudden increase in sea level.
