A glimpse of Rising Sea Levels


NCSE is pleased to offer a free preview (PDF) of Hunt Janin and Scott A. Mandia's Rising Sea Levels: An Introduction to Cause and Impact (McFarland & Company, 2012). The preview consists of chapter 12, "A Range of Options to Cope with Sea Level Rise," in which Janin and Mandia look "at two highly-developed countries which will increasingly be faced with a rising sea" — the Netherlands and the United States — in order "to learn what steps they may take to deal with this problem."

Michael E. Mann writes, "if you're looking for a comprehensive discussion of one of the most pressing issues on the planet ... the threat of global sea level rise ... then this is the book for you," and the reviewer for Choice wrote, "Janin and Mandia are to be commended for their impressive writing skills, intelligent presentations, and unusually intensive information-gathering efforts." Hunt Janin is a writer on a number of scholarly subjects; Scott A. Mandia is a professor of physical sciences at Suffolk County Community College.
