Global warming and sea levels with shoreline map???

I'm thinking about buying a home near the shore..but am concerned about rising sea levels. Does anyone know where I may find the prediction maps for the rising shore level?

Thanks.

Just buy a third tier home. It's bound to be beach front someday.

Hard to say how reliable maps will be. Parts of the California coast are 40' up from the ocean, but in San Francisco one set of cliffs eroded back 20' of bluff due to the sea eroding the base and it falling down and washing out to sea.



in tha 510.

True that it is hard to figure out where/how much (if any) the shoreline will change, but it's nice to at least consider it...

If you live by a bluff in San Francisco you'd just move to another one of your homes.

I'd skip south Florida.

Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

South Florida for sure I would not touch. Otherwise, this is a minor factor to consider because most projections are talking about...what...20-30 years out?

Unless you're building a fortress of immortality you probably want to be concerned with likelihood of erosion from storms.

I would suggest buying a house at least 20mm higher to be safe.

Save Ms. Tessmacher's mom instead, and there will be new beachfront property in California.
