Beach and Coastal Planning
Climate change will increase sea levels, storm frequency and intensity, erosion, and flooding in many regions of the San Francisco Bay Area. To protect communities and ecosystems, managers and planners need locally relevant tools that help them understand vulnerabilities and plan for action.
Point Blue Conservation Science, Gulf of the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary, U.S. Geological Survey, the San Francisco Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve and the National Park Service have teamed up to better understand the future of sea level rise and storm hazards from Half Moon Bay in the south to Bodega Head in the north, including the entire San Francisco Bay shoreline and baylands.
