Georgia’s sea level has long been rising about an inch per decade

Local sea level rise rates can vary somewhat from the global average, depending upon a variety of factors. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has been recording data on sea level at a tide gauge station at Fort Pulaski, Georgia since 1935. The data show the monthly mean sea level from 1935 – 2006 and a rate of change of about one foot per century.[[National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration “Tides & Currents, Mean Sea Level Trend.” 8670870 Fort Pulaski, Georgia.]] That is faster than average global trends to date.

Most research projects that sea level rise will accelerate a great deal this century compared to last.
