From: Sea-level rise exponentially increases coastal flood frequency

Figure 7

The spatial and temporal variability of the time scale, \(\tau \), over which sea-level rise doubles the odds of exceeding the present-day 50-year water-level event, following Eq. (6) in Methods. Panels A and C show the spatial variability of \(\tau \) at tide stations along the U.S. coast under the RCP 8.5 scenario for the time periods 2000–2050 and 2025–2075, respectively. Panels B and D show histogram plots of \(\tau \) for the time periods 2000–2050 and 2025–2075, respectively.
