The US coast from Cape Hatteras to New England is experiencing increased coastal or tidal flooding because of local sea level rise. I started this blog to track the developing scientific understanding of the causes and to provide sources of information to both scientists and anyone else interested. Policy papers will not be included.

Nuisance Flooding 1927-2014
With the beginning of a new year I downloaded all the one hour data from Sewells Point and plotted the number of hours measured water level was above the nuisance flooding level for that station.
Nuisance flooding is considered 0.53 m above MHHW.
If you want the data for this plot do you can replot it or data from Sewells Point contact me.
