With evidence that sea levels in New Jersey have risen by more than a foot over the last 100 years and are expected to continue going up, some experts believe sea level rise should be considered as the state continues to recover and rebuild from Superstorm Sandy. "We can expect sea level rise of another foot and a half or so by the middle of the 21st century, by 2050, and maybe as much as three to four feet by the end of this century in 2100," said Anthony Broccoli, professor of atmospheric science at Rutgers University. "Those rises in sea levels are significant because they are going to increase the risk of flooding from storms. The kind of water levels we saw from Sandy will happen more frequently toward the end of this century because the baseline water level will be higher."
