Coastal areas in the tropics may see some of the largest sea-level rises due to take place this century because of climate change, according to a study.

This would particularly affect the Indian Ocean and Western Pacific, which include many small island states, such as the Maldives, and vulnerable coastal deltas, including the Bay of Bengal.

The findings may help analyse the impacts of climate change and plan infrastructure for adaptation, says the study, published in Earth System Dynamics.
