Our report cards project sea-level height relative to land in the year 2050 for 32 U.S. coastal localities. Here we summarize the latest projections for easier comparison. For a general understanding of why sea level varies from place to place and year to year, visit our Processes page. To view the suite of processes influencing sea-level trends at a regional scale, visit our East Coast, Gulf Coast, and West Coast pages. For full technical details, read our report.
Trend Values for 2017
Below we compare the latest rise rates and acceleration values for each of our NOAA tide stations. Together, these values determine the year-to-year changes in sea level relative to land at each station. Mouse over and tab the charts for further details.*Note that we include Key West in both our East Coast and Gulf Coast analyses.
