  • We evaluate paleo‐, historical, and future sea‐level rise along the U.S. mid‐Atlantic coast. The rate of relative sea‐level rise in New Jersey decreased from 3.5 ± 1.0 mm/yr at 7.5-6.5 ka, to 2.2 ± 0.8 mm/yr at 5.5-4.5 ka to a minimum of 0.9 ± 0.4 mm/yr at 3.3-2.3 ka. Relative sea level rose at a rate of 1.6 ± 0.1 mm/yr from 2.2 to 1.2 ka (750 Common Era [CE]) and 1.4 ± 0.1 mm/yr from 800 to 1800 ... read more
