Sea Level Rise
Sea Level Rise Hazard Profile development used the worst case scenario of maximum level of sea rise of
about 59 cm in 100 years predicted in 2007 by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Potential impacts of sea level rise in coastal
areas within the next 25 to 100 year period was studied. The sea level rise maps of 1:50,000 scale covering the entire coastal belt indicating the
inundation areas in 2025, 2050 and in 2100 were prepared.
