In a world of rising seas and intensifying storms, coastal cities face extreme flood risk. In some areas, this takes the form of nuisance flooding during king tides, while in other areas, it means gambling with the threat of obliteration due to storm surge or tsunamis. Engineers, scientists, and planners propose a variety of measures to mitigate these risks. Traditional solutions such as seawalls and coastal embankments, nature-based solutions such as wetland restoration and sandy foreshores, and social solutions including land use zoning, retreat, and evacuation plans all have their respective benefits and limitations. This Special Issue welcomes papers that address any and all of these issues.
