Sea Level Rise: Threatened Areas Map
Entry ID: cal-adap_sealevel


Summary
Abstract: This modeled data in the tool represents inundation location and depth for the San Francisco Bay, the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta and California coast resulting from different increments of sea level rise coupled with extreme storm events. This research is unique and innovative in its dynamic spatial detail and the fact that it incorporates real, time series water level data from past (near 100 year) storm events to capture the dynamic effect of storm surges in modeling inundation using 3Di, a three dimensional hydrodynamic model along with high resolution earth surface models.
