The Science

The Science behind the project…

As over half of the world’s people now live in regions vulnerable to sea level rise and extreme flooding, the HighWaterLine is a useful tool for many communities globally. We appreciate there is an immense volume of scientific data explaining how climate change is causing our seas to rise, fueling more extreme storms and in some places dramatically increasing rainfall and as a result, causing extreme flooding. Below is a brief overview of the causes of manmade climate change as well as some of the climate change impacts. Please visit the resources at the end for additional information.
