Figure 4

Global estimates of the expected factor of increase in exceedance probability, f inc , and the future return period, T R , of the 50-yr water level, for SLR projections: μ SL  = +0.1, +0.25, +0.5 m. We note that the estimated increase in flooding potential is purely due to SLR and not due to changes in climate or storminess. White lines indicate the Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn. The maps in this figure were made using Matlab 2016a (https://www.mathworks.com/products/matlab/).
