A study conducted by the Berlin-based think-tank Global Climate Forum (GCF) with the support of the University of Southampton includes a comprehensive global simulation result on future flood damages to buildings and infrastructure in coastal flood plains. The researchers conclude that over the next couple of decades the financial damages from storm surge flooding may rise from $10-$40 billion a year to up to $100,000 billion per year.
