Sea level rise is an effect of global climate change. How does this work? As oceans absorb heat from carbon pollution, the waters expand. As glaciers melt, more water pours into the oceans. Climate disruption causes higher tides and storm surges. The result: more and more flooding for cities like San Francisco.
Beside the Tide is the first in a web series Bay Nature is showcasing over the next month about how the Bay Area will fare under rising oceans. The stories were produced by Claire Schoen Media. Check out our interview with Claire Schoen about her work and this project.
