Risks to future atoll habitability from climate-driven environmental changes

Duvat, Virginie K. E.; Magnan, Alexandre K.; Perry, Chris T.; Spencer, Tom; Bell, Johann D.; Wabnitz, Colette C. C.; Webb, Arthur P.; White, Ian; McInnes, Kathleen L; Gattuso, Jean-Pierre; Graham, Nicholas A.J.


Recent assessments of future risk to atoll habitability have focused on island erosion and submergence, and have overlooked the effects of other climate‐related drivers, as well as differences between ocean basins and island types. Here we investigate the cumulative risk arising from multiple drivers (sea‐level rise; changes in rainfall, ocean–atmosphere oscillations and tropical cyclone intensity; ocean warming and acidification) to five Habitability Pillars: Land, Freshwater supply, Food...[Show more]
