    estimates for local sea level rise in VA?  As I understand it, the major factors are AGW related general sea level rise and local land subsidence due to tectonic and groundwater changes.  I have the AR4 global estimate but nothing local to VA.  

    A paper was recently published claiming that groundwater withdrawal was a larger factor than previously understood, but this remains controversial.  The recent fiasco in North Carolina drew attention to the rather large range of estimates from AR4 and other sources for 21st century rise, and whether or not the rate is accelerating.

    Where are we, now that we need us most?
