Nuisance flooding, or sunny day flooding, is an increasing issue throughout the United States due to sea level rise. The Hampton roads area in southeast Virginia hosts the world's largest navy base, houses more than 1.5 million people, and is threatened by a large rise in nuisance flooding from rising seas, which could be exacerbated in the future due to internal climate variability. This project analyzes future nuisance flooding events in Norfolk due to tides and internal climate variability out to 2050.
