We update graphs of "Storms of My Grandchildren." Yet the greatest insight about processes discussed in "Storms" is often provided by other quantities, for example, the rate of ice sheet disintegration.
We include some data from other scientists or their web sites, as indicated.
The Working Group will compile and review the latest climate research, including considering the implications of recent scientific advances on ice loss dynamics for updating sea-level rise projections.
The Working Group includes subject-matter experts in coastal processes, risk assessment, climatic change, ice loss and ice sheet behavior, and statistical modeling.
The Working Group members are: Developing science-based, user-informed policy guidance NOW AVAILABLE: Sea-Level Rise Public Workshop Agenda Input from users of the guidance document will be solicited at multiple points throughout the update process.
In February, March and April 2017, an led by Susanne Moser Research & Consulting and Climate Access, a not-for-profit organization, will conduct interviews and five listening sessions to better understand the needs of those who will use the guidance document.
The updated guidance will focus on the needs of state agencies local governments.
It will help cities and counties as they comply with a new law that requires them to incorporate climate change into their planning efforts.
Updating the science NOW AVAILABLE: Rising Seas in California: An Update on Sea-Level Rise Science The California Ocean Protection Council is partnering with the California Ocean Science Trust, which has been charged with leading the scientific component of the update and convening an .The Working Group will integrate the latest findings from the peer-reviewed scientific literature into a science report that will inform the guidance document update.This science report will be presented to the California Ocean Protection Council at its April 2017 meeting.This input will help ensure that the updated guidance is understandable and useful for planning and decision-making.
In summer 2017, the California Ocean Protection Council and California Ocean Science Trust, with support from the Engagement Team, will convene a series of public workshops with state, regional, and local stakeholders to share the science findings and to solicit feedback on how stakeholders will utilize the guidance document.
The update to the Guidance was developed by the California Ocean Protection Council (OPC), in coordination with the California Natural Resources Agency, the Governor’s Office of Planning and Research, and the California Energy Commission.
