Rigorously Valuing the Role of U.S. Coral Reefs in Coastal Hazard Risk Reduction

2019

This report issued by the U. S. Geological Survey and the U. S. Department of the Interior quantifies the value of U. S. coral reefs in protecting people and infrastructure from coastal hazards that will be exacerbated by climate change and sea-level rise including extreme weather events, flooding, and erosion. The report is intended to inform stakeholders and decision-makers of the value of coral reefs in reducing risk from coastal hazards, and to provide quantitative data that can be used to consider the role coral reefs should play in adaptation and risk mitigation planning.

County of San Mateo, California Sea Level Rise Vulnerability Assessment

March 13, 2018

San Mateo County, California is particularly vulnerable to sea level rise as it is bound by the Pacific Ocean to the west and the San Francisco Bay to the east. This comprehensive 200+ page sea level rise vulnerability assessment offers a highly detailed analysis of the current and future coastal flooding and erosion risks for the County in terms of various sectors and networked infrastructure including critical infrastructure assets, impacts on human mental and physical health, vulnerable populations, and natural communities and ecosystems.

New Hampshire’s Climate Risk in the Seacoast (C-RiSe) Project

New Hampshire’s Department of Environmental Services administers the Climate Risk in the Seacoast (C-RiSe) project which is intended to provide municipalities along the Great Bay with the resources they need to assess sea level rise and storm surge flooding. The Great Bay communities that have been assessed include: Rollinsford, Dover, Madbury, Durham, Newmarket, Newfields, Exeter, Stratham, Greenland, and Newington. This project is funded through the Coastal Zone Management Act by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

The State of Narragansett Bay and Its Watershed

2017

This analysis assesses the current conditions and projected trends for the Narragansett Bay, a watershed that spans Rhode Island and Massachusetts and is home to 1. 95 million people. The research is the culmination of multiple years of study by universities, organizations, federal partners, and agencies in Massachusetts and Rhode Island. The results are presented in a shorter summary document and a 500-page technical report. In addition to other stressors including water quality and pollution, urbanization, and changes to habitats, the researchers look at the impacts of climate change now and in the future.
