A nearly full moon can be seen rising over Thunder Mountain last December. According to NASA, a normal lunar fluctuation-called a moon wobble- will cause coastal flooding in many parts of the country in the mid 2030s. However, an oceanographer says that Southeast Alaska will not experience the same level of flooding due to declining ocean depths driven by glacial retreat. (Ben Hohenstatt / Juneau Empire File)
