You're invited to share your thoughts and ideas on Sea Level Rise with the County of Marin by answering a few brief questions about potential solutions, community changes, and local risks.
The sea along Marin’s coast has risen 8 inches since record-keeping began and the best science says the ocean will rise substantially in coming years. The C-SMART project (Collaboration: Sea-level Marin Adaptation Response Team) is bringing communities together to better understand the challenge and examine possible responses.
Just like participants in the workshops, held October 28-30, we invite you to collaborate on articulating the values, resources, and assets that could be vulnerable to rising seas. Maps of those “assets” and the complementary PowerPoint presentation are available to help you, and we invite you to examine them before responding to the 4 questions in this topic. To answer the questions, select Your Response above.
1. Are there any additions or changes to the Sea Level Rise Exposure Maps we should make?
2. What changes are you seeing in your community because of sea level rise or high tides (e.g. January/February king tides)?
3. How are you, your community, and the coast are at risk to sea level rise and storm surges?
4. What are some potential adaptation or responses to Sea Level Rise impacts you identified?
In a separate topic on Open Marin, you can post photos that represent what makes Marin’s coast a special place. Access to resources and additional information is also available on the website www.MarinSLR.org.
