Preliminary Study of the Effect of Sea Level Rise on the Resources of the Hayward Shore - California

March 2010

The Hayward Area Shoreline Planning Agency (HASPA) had a preliminary study conducted on the impact of sea-level rise on the resources of the Hayward shoreline, and the actions that could be taken to protect both the wetlands and shoreline development in this area of the San Francisco Bay, California.   Planning of the South Bay Salt Pond Restoration Project by the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service addressed the projected change in sea-level within the HASPA planning area to the south of Highway 92.

Adapting to Shoreline Change: A Foundation for Improved Management and Planning in South Carolina

April 2010

The South Carolina Department of Health & Environmental Control's Shoreline Change Advisory Committee proposes policies for shoreline management and provides guidance in this report for future coastal planning in South Carolina. The report is intended to "help clarify longstanding policy, reduce community vulnerabilities, resolve conflicts, improve public and private planning, save money, enhance key resource protections, reduce liabilities, and improve public access; but more generally, to ensure the long-term health of coastal shorelines and vitality of the coastal economy.

National Assessment of Shoreline Change: Historical Shoreline Change along the New England and Mid-Atlantic Coasts

2010

Part of a series of reports on shoreline change produced by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), summarizes historical changes of sandy shorelines in 10 regions of the U.S. New England and Mid-Atlantic coasts. The report emphasizes the hazard from erosion at regional scales and relates this hazard to the body of knowledge regarding coastal geology of the New England and Mid-Atlantic region because of its potential impact on natural resources and the economy.

Maryland Update to the Governor and General Assembly

January 2010

The report summarizes implementation progress of the Maryland Commission on Climate Change policy recommendations as identified in the state's 2008 Climate Action Plan. The Climate Action Plan contains 19 policy recommendations that focus on climate change adaptation, primarily for sea-level rise and coastal storm surge -  from both the Mitigation Working Group's (MWG) and the Adaptation Response Working Groups' (ARWG). For each of the recommendations brief updates are provided, including any institutional, regulatory or legislative actions.

Satellite Beach Sea-Level Rise Comprehensive Plan Recommendations

2010

In the fall of 2009, the City of Satellite Beach, Florida, authorized a project designed to assess municipal vulnerability to rising sea level and initiate the planning process to properly mitigate impacts. The city has a total area of 4. 3 square miles, in which 2. 9 square miles of it is land and 1. 4 square miles of it (31. 94%) is water. The City’s highest elevation barely exceeds 20 ft (6. 1 m) and is associated with the Atlantic Ocean coastal dune system, which otherwise averages about +15 ft (4.

Coastal Community Development Partnership (NOAA and EPA)

The U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) have built a partnership to to support state and local coastal development innovations. Under the agreement, the two agencies will partner with local communities and other governmental entities to give waterfront communities the tools and resources they need to benefit the economy, public health, and the environment while protecting coastal ecosystems, including anticipating and reducing the impacts of climate change.

Delaware 2017 Coastal Inundation Maps

2017

Delaware's Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) and the scientists from Delaware Coastal Programs have developed Sea Level Rise (SLR) inundation maps for the state as an online interactive tool. The maps show the possible impacts of inundation based on various SLR scenarios for Delaware’s waterways and watersheds.  The maps are a representation of inundation based on local Mean Higher High Water (MHHW), which is the long-term average of the higher of the daily high tides.

Costs of Defending Against Rising Sea Levels and Flooding in Mid-Atlantic Metropolitan Coastal Areas

2010

This assessment identifies the potential costs of continually rising ocean levels and associated flooding, specifically on the mid-Atlantic Coast.  Metropolitan areas are susceptible to detriment on many levels, such as severe property damage and loss of natural resources, from sea level rise and related inundation and extreme weather events. This paper addresses what it would cost to minimize or eliminate such damage.
