A report from the Virginia Institute of Marine Science projects that Boston could receive 1.5 feet of sea level rise (from 1992 levels) by 2050.
The report also shows that the rate of sea level rise isn't a linear constant but is accelerating as predicted by oceanographers and hydrologists years ago.
The data project's release comes amid heightened local focus on climate mitigation and adaptation, as Massachusetts was hit by three damaging nor'easters over the past two weeks.
On Thursday, Gov. Charlie Baker stood in coastal Scituate — which had flooded during the first of those storms — to announce a climate resiliency bond bill.
Higher sea levels are likely to result in more coastal flooding.
As NOAA put it in an analysis this week, "a sea level rise of 2 feet would more than triple the frequency of coastal flooding across the Northeast, without any change in storms."
