As the planet warms, one of the biggest questions is how fast sea level will rise. A team of Rutgers University researchers has attempted to answer that question and localize it by studying past sea-level rise along the East Coast, as well as other factors that could influence what happens along the New Jersey Shore…The research was led by what Richard Lutz, director of Rutgers’ Institute of Marine and Coastal Sciences, called a "sea-level rise dream team." They include Kenneth Miller, a professor of earth and planetary sciences specializing in sea-level rise in past millennia, and Robert Kopp, a geomathematician who is assistant professor of earth and planetary sciences. Then there’s Benjamin Horton, who has focused on more recent sea-level rise – the past 10,000 years or so – along the coast.
