# Engineering/Construction question in the wake of climate change, whereto with it?

Recently, two papers where published independently documenting accelerated mass loss of Greenland's glaciers, namely https://www.nature.com/articles/s43247-020-0010-1 and https://www.nature.com/articles/s43247-020-0001-2.

How would, for instance, the Netherlands cope with a 1m sea level rise in a few decades? Parts are below sea level anyway. Is there a department in SE where the question would be appropriate?

• Nevermind, found my answer. They'd have to run from more than half a meter in 30 years. – user20217 Aug 23 at 18:01
• Your question is interesting and readers who find it in the future may appreciate you posting at least a short answer. It's always okay to answer your own question in SE and nothing wrong with accepting the answer if you're satisfied with it. – uhoh Aug 24 at 1:47

There is an Engineering SE, which at first glimpse seems to be suitable for questions like this: it has tags like civil engineering and geotechnical engineering. However, a similar question has been closed for being too broad... It was five years ago though, so it might be worth another shot!
