This site explains the effects of rising sea levels due to global warming. According to the information found here, rising seas will increase coastal erosion, pollution, storm damage, and flooding. They\'ll pose threats to coastal roads, bridges, jetties, breakwaters, docks, piers, and waterfront property and intruding salt water might contaminate groundwater supplies and threaten landfill and hazardous-waste sites. Also described are the effects on coastal estuaries, rich and productive tidal flats, and tidal wetlands that not only act as nurseries to most of our important marine fishes and shellfishes, but also filter many dangerous pollutants that rivers and creeks carry downstream to the estuary and also buffer the effects of storms and floods.
