Impact of Climate Change On Sea Level Rise and Coastal Infrastructure

Impact of Climate Change On Sea Level Rise and Coastal Infrastructure

 

Climate change is projected to impact the rise of sea levels significantly. As global temperatures continue to rise, the polar ice caps and glaciers are melting at an accelerated rate. This influx of melted ice is gradually causing sea levels to rise, threatening coastal communities and natural habitats worldwide. The melting of polar ice caps and glaciers contributes to rising sea levels by adding more water to the oceans. This increased volume of water can lead to flooding in low-lying coastal areas, damaging infrastructure and displacing communities. In addition, the influx of saline water can intrude into freshwater sources, jeopardizing agricultural lands and drinking water supplies.

Rising sea levels can also exacerbate the impacts of storm surges and high tides, leading to more frequent and severe coastal inundation events. These events can cause erosion of coastlines, loss of habitats, and damage to infrastructure assets and the built environment, threatening human and ecological communities. In conclusion, climate change will continue exacerbating the rise in sea levels, significantly impacting coastal communities and ecosystems. Adaptation and mitigation strategies are essential to address these challenges and safeguard the future of our planet.

About ClimaTwin®

ClimaTwin® is a leading climate risk intelligence solution for infrastructure assets and the built environment.

We empower infrastructure stakeholders to mitigate climate risks and assess adaptation actions across the total asset lifecycle. By connecting complex climate models and infrastructure digital twins, our solution enables owner-operators, investors, governments, engineers, and other decision-makers to aggregate, visualize, and analyze disparate datasets, revealing site-specific insights at a hyper-local scale. Benefits include 5-10x near-term returns and lifetime cost-avoidance by mitigating risks to systems, services, and societies.

Infrastructure Digital Twins Protect Against Climate Change and Rising Sea Levels

Infrastructure Digital Twins Protect Against Climate Change and Rising Sea Levels

Singapore is the first government to build a country-wide digital twin.

Here’s Why Investors are Starting to Pay Attention to Infrastructure Digital Twins

By Steve Cockerell, Industry Marketing Director, Rail & Transit, Bentley Systems

Discussing the findings of CDBB’s most recent whitepaper ‘How finance and digital twins can shape a better future for the planet’ in the May 25 episode of ‘The Engineers Collective’, former executive director of CDBB Alexandra Bolton commented that in order to meet our biggest challenges “adoption of the Gemini Principles, ensuring data is open and shared in a secure and resilient fashion, and collaboration, was absolutely vital, as none of us either individually or as our organizations can do this alone, we need to collaborate to make this work.”

Bolton continued, “Think about data as an asset that becomes more valuable when its shared and think about data not just from your new assets that you might be building, but from existing assets, and think about that data across the whole lifecycle, across sectors, and across boundaries.”

If this sounds like a step too far, an impossible dream, consider Singapore, which just became the first government to build a country-wide digital twin. Open data, connected systems, and technology will aid in the building of more sustainable, resilient, and smart communities, as well as in the deployment of renewable energy and protection against climate change and rising sea levels.
