The Effects of Sea Level Rise and Increased Storm Events: An Editorial Introduction
AbstractThis special issue of Geography Research Forum aims to canvass the impact of sea level rise from a number of standpoints including planning, law, political economy, property rights and climate change policy. It is clearly not possible to accurately establish the impact of projected sea level rise and increased storm events, but the inevitable impact associated with these phenomena is evidenced by a growing awareness in academia, planning practice and the legislatures.
