Adaptation to Climate Change and Sea Level Rise: The Case by Sebastian Weissenberger, Omer Chouinard

By Sebastian Weissenberger, Omer Chouinard

The ebook offers a concise and interdisciplinary outlook at the affects of weather swap on coastal components and the way coastal groups adapt to them. the 1st bankruptcy analyses how sea point upward thrust, altering ocean stipulations, or elevated weather variability and the socio-environmental context of the coastal quarter ends up in weak groups. the second one bankruptcy addresses variation techniques and instruments, and provides a few examples in their program around the globe. The 3rd bankruptcy describes participative motion study initiatives undertaken in New Brunswick and the way this group dependent procedure has enabled groups to extend their weather resilience.

Where resilience breaks down. The notion of «tipping points» has been applied to the Earth-climate system by Lenton et al. (2008). In a dynamic system, not only the amplitude and duration but also the timing of perturbations is important to assess their criticality. In the context of climate change, gradually shifting baselines, such as increasing ocean temperatures and acidity or accelerating coastal erosion lower the threshold for critical perturbation over time. In the case of extreme weather events, the frequency of events is important to consider, in addition to their amplitude.
