Abstract

Owing to global warming, imminent losses at polar ice sheets will entail several meters of highly unpredictable sea level rise. Merely carrying on with bulwarks for defense against a rising sea will exacerbate the fate of coastal flatlands such as the subsiding North Sea Wadden Coast. The mighty dimension of the rising sea requires debates on a wider conceptual horizon. It is time to initiate stepwise coastal transformations toward growing with a rising sea.
