Cost of Flooding Doubles Worldwide with Loss of Coral Reef

An article published in Nature Communications shows that because “coral reefs serve as natural, low-crested, submerged breakwaters, which provide flood reduction benefits through wave breaking and wave energy attenuation,” coral reefs save billions of dollars each year in flood damage. Losing coral reefs results in worse flooding further inland for larger numbers of people, and it increases in the costs
