A new report in Nature Climate Change finds that the east coast of the United States is one of those. Sea level rise here is happening 3-4 times as quickly as the global average—with the expectation, the USGS says, that "if global temperatures continue to rise, rates of sea level rise in this area are expected to continue increasing." The study calls the 600-mile region from Cape Hatteras, North Carolina to north of Boston a hotspot for sea level rise.
