Combining previous estimates in a multimethod approach, extreme sea levels are assessed under global warming levels of 1.5–5 °C at over 7,000 coastal sites worldwide. By 2100 or before, about 50% of locations exhibit present-day 100-year extreme sea levels at least once per year, even at 1.5 °C of warming.
