Figure-7.16: Projected relative sea-level change along Canadian coastlines at the end of the century

Projected relative sea-level changes shown at 2100 for the median of a high emission scenario (RCP8.5) at 69 coastal locations in Canada and the northern United States. Values range from a sea-level fall of 84 cm to a sea-level rise of 93 cm and are relative to the average conditions in the 1986–2005 period. For comparison, the projected median global sea-level change at 2100 for the high emission scenario is 74 cm.
