A new global study involving researchers from the Coastal Risks and Sea-Level Rise Research Group, Department of Geography in Kiel suggests coastal wetlands can survive rising sea levels and continue to provide natural defence from flooding if they are able to migrate further inland. 

The full paper "Future responses of global coastal wetlands to sea level rise" has been published in the scientific journal Nature and is available to read online. Further background information is also available in Nature and ScienceNews.
