Sea Level Rise and Storm Surge Projections for the National Park Service

May 21, 2018

From the University of Colorado in partnership with the National Park Service, this report describes how climate change and associated sea level rise and storm surge can affect coastal U. S. National Park infrastructure, facilities, and resources. This analysis provides sea level rise projections for 118 park units and storm surge projections for 79 of those parks - from which storm surge maps for each site are included. These results are intended to inform adaptation planning for coastal parks and resources managed by the National Park Service.

California Forest Carbon Plan

May 10, 2018

California’s Forest Carbon Plan focuses on how to restore resilience to all forestlands in the state, creating forests that are and adaptive to climate change, and reliable long-term carbon sinks, rather than sources of GHG and black carbon emissions from wildfire. The report provides an overview of future conditions to forested ecosystems across the state based on projected climate change impacts. Goals and related strategies are outlined to improve natural lands and urban forest health, enhance carbon storage resilience, increase sequestration, and reduce GHG emissions.
