Over a decade ago Dredd Blog began to take a look at the concepts of sea level rise (SLR), and a bit later to consider sea level fall (SLF).
The issue is now discussed in a wide variety of internet venues (e.g. What is high tide flooding?; US high tide flooding breaks records in multiple locations; Climate change impacts on seaports: A growing threat to sustainable trade and development) to name a few (see also the posts under the "EXTINCTION" heading on Series Posts (A-M) page.
In this current series (Seaports With Sea Level Change, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22) the focus is on individual sea ports that also involve Container Ship international trade.
Here is the previous update on Seaports:

The zone between the lines is a place for us to keep our eyes on:
"The municipalities and states are pointing to the costs they’re shouldering because of climate change. The sea level is expected to rise by three feet along San Mateo’s shoreline by 2100, drowning ecosystems, parks, neighborhoods, and infrastructure alike. Baltimore faces dozens more extreme heat days per year, severe storms, and a four-in-five chance of flooding above nine feet by 2100. Boulder’s many injuries include wildfires, drought, flooding, extreme heat days, higher transmission of insect-borne diseases, and increased ground-level ozone pollution.
The suits allege that the energy companies misrepresented the harms of fossil fuels through subterfuge. They funded 'dozens of think tanks, front groups, and dark money foundations pushing climate change denial.' Not mincing words, the attorneys for San Mateo wrote that the fossil fuel companies’ conduct was 'so vile, base, and contemptible that it would be looked down upon and despised by reasonable people.'”
