You Sunk My Battleship!

Which military bases are at risk of flooding? The Union of Concerned Scientists have compiled a collection of 18 fact sheets, each concerning the 18 military installations that are at the most risk of losing valuable land. From rising seas to storm surge, hurricanes and climate change are exposing infrastructure, training grounds, and housing to flooding. This compilation also includes key findings surrounding these three major risks for the years 2050, 2070, and 2100:

  1. “More frequent and extensive tidal flooding”
  2. “Land loss as some areas are permanently inundated and others flood with daily high tides”
  3. “Deeper and more extensive storm surge inundation”
