Erosion of coral reefs and seafloor is happening much more and much faster than what was previously known or expected, enough so that it's affecting those local sea level rises. Enough so that it increases the risk to the coastlines from coastal hazards, storm waves, every day persistent waves, tsunamis and those kinds of things.feedback
