The Bahamas: Climate Change - Effects and Preparedness
 
Climate change is expected to have significant effects on sea levels worldwide, including around The Bahamas. While it's challenging to predict exact timelines for specific impacts, scientists anticipate that sea levels will continue to rise over the coming decades due to ongoing global warming.

The Bahamas, being an archipelago of low-lying islands, is particularly vulnerable to rising sea levels. As temperatures increase, polar ice caps and glaciers melt, contributing to the expansion of seawater and the inundation of coastal areas. Additionally, warmer temperatures can lead to thermal expansion of seawater, further exacerbating sea level rise.

It's difficult to pinpoint an exact timeframe for when these effects will become pronounced in The Bahamas, as it depends on various factors such as the rate of greenhouse gas emissions, global temperature trends, and the stability of ice sheets. However, it's generally expected that sea levels will continue to rise gradually over the 21st century and beyond.
