Oceanography Week 4 The sea surface height varies by surface temperature Warmer water expands, causing it to be slightly elevated­ this has been measured by  satellite imaging. Because of this, local sea surface height is a function of surface  temperature El Nino runs along the equator and warms the water, changing US climate: warmer  winters, droughts in California and the Southwestern corner of the country Over the week, we have been working on a “sea level rise project” to learn the economic  effect sea rise has on the country. Should the sea level rise just four feet, many of the  country’s coastal regions would be greatly impacted, devastating the residences in said  areas. The overall effect would be close to Nine trillion dollars, forcing individuals, insurance  companies, cities, or the government to compensate for the loss (not adjusting to  projected inflation for the time that the rise is expected to take place), this would mean  taxing every gallon of gas $1.50 for ten years to make up for that damage alone, not  accounting for any further damage that would be expected to take place in that time. Any area that is below sea level would be in even more trouble, especially in the wake of  a potential storm. The class variation in the prediction for the amount of money lost was great because  some people evaluated higher priced areas for their sample space, some places had  greater lost because of elevation The Washington Post and Zillow estimated that 1.9 million homes would be submerged  by 2100, causing a loss in $882. This estimate is greater because they have a greater rise  in sea level and because they may be accounting for an exponential rise Florida, New Jersey, and New York are projected to be the most greatly impacted by the  sea level rise. (Though Florida has a lot of coastal area, so if it area dependent, then there  is a bias) However, this is just on a national level – the entire globe is at risk Strategies include protecting real estate by pumping sand to block a meter of water rise.  Sand has been dumped in a lot of coastal cities to accommodate from the sediment  washed away by storms
