Different forces drive storm-induced sea level spikes on U.S. East, Gulf coasts, says CPO-funded study 13 February 2020

Different forces drive storm-induced sea level spikes on U.S. East, Gulf coasts, says CPO-funded study

Using a new powerful NOAA global climate model, NOAA and partner researchers show that big spikes in daily coastal sea levels will increase in the future from the Gulf Coast to the Atlantic coast as warming progresses, but will be driven by differing forces in these two regions.
