This is the first in a series of webinars on sea level change. This session focuses on different choices for practitioners trying to use the best available sea-level change science for adaptation planning needs. Our panel will discuss the components of changing sea-levels, and identify areas where scientists are working to reduce uncertainty around major contributing factors like melting ice-sheets. Then, we will walk through some questions that users need to think about when planning for future inundation and using sea level projections. The panel will use examples from Washington, New Jersey, and elsewhere to illustrate different ways communities are answering the questions above, along with others that come up during our discussion. Webinar participants will leave with tools and examples for using the best available sea-level change science to suit a variety of exposure mapping and adaptation planning approaches.
This webcast is hosted by the APA's HMDR Division.
