If the ocean rose an inch in a century, how far inland would that be? Eighteen inches? Thirty-six?
Depends on the specifics of the coastline.

Rising oceans don't rise uniformly. And in areas where they are rising, this accelerates weathering and erosion, amplifying the inland movement of the shoreline.

Ive been to places that have lost several meters of coastline in the last twenty or thirty years.

I've been to places that have lost nothing.
