Sea-level rise driving Hawaii’s beach erosion


Up to 100 feet of shoreline will disappear around the state if sea level rises just 1 foot.

Russell Roberts‘s insight:

This theory could explain why much of Hawaii’s extensive beaches are disappearing.  For the past two decades, restoration efforts have been trying to replace sand at Waikiki Beach.  So far, those efforts have kept pace with the rise in sea levels.  The situation is critical in some areas of the South Pacific where low-lying atolls may disappear in our lifetime.  Some nations, such as Tuvalu, are in great danger of being inundated.  Aloha, Russ.
