Sea Level Rise

Climate experts estimate that by 2100, sea level could rise by around 70 inches and that the frequency, intensity and flood-effects of storms will increase. People in coastal areas need to understand how sea level rise may affect their homes, schools, roads, public facilities, natural resources and habitat areas, and how to prepare for them. Collaboration: Sea-level Marin Adaptation Response Team (C-SMART) is working to develop this understanding for Marin’s ocean coast, so that together, we can prepare to meet the challenge of sea level rise.
