Title Sea-Level Rise for the Coasts of California, Oregon, and Washington: Past, Present, and Future.

Abstract Projections of sea-level rise are increasingly being incorporated into coastal planning at national, state, and local levels. Assessments of sea-level rise at state and regional levels are challenging because data on the geophysical processes involved are relatively sparse and there are no agreed-upon models or approaches for projecting future sea-level rise. Consequently, in addition to searching the scientific literature, it was necessary to consult widely with colleagues and to carry out original data analyses. The results were discussed during four committee meetings in 2011 and countless teleconference and email discussions.
