Short summary
Relative sea-level rise is traditionally measured with tide gauges, but we question the reliability of tide-gauge data in low-elevation coastal zones. Benchmark data show that tide gauges typically do not record subsidence in the shallow subsurface and thus underestimate rates of relative sea-level rise. We present an alternative method of measuring relative sea-level rise and conclude that low-elevation coastal zones may be at higher risk of flooding than previously assumed.
