Adaptation Resources

So many resources, so little time. Rather than try to list them all here, we'll try to curate them so you have a place to start that is (hopefully) meaningful for San Rafael businesses and residents.  

Marin County Sea Level Rise Resources 

This is the County's compendium, including BayWAVE, C-SMART, the award-winning Game of Floods, a resource library and much more. Marin Sea Level Rise siteMarin Wildfire Prevention Authority 

This County-wide joint powers authority was created in 2020 and will fund proactive state-of-the-art wildfire prevention and preparedness efforts for 10 years. MWPA website. 

Adapting to Rising Tides 

The San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission provides a wealth of planning guidance, tools, and information to address the challenges of climate change.  ART website.  


Cal-Adapt provides the data and tools for climate adaptation planning, building resiliency, and fostering community engagement.  Cal-Adapt website.  

NOAA's Sea Level Rise Viewer 

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's mapping tool helps visualize impacts from coastal flooding and sea level rise (up to 10 feet above average high tides). Photo simulations show how future flooding will impact local landmarks and a wealth of data is provided on water depths, flood frequency, socio-economic vulnerability, and wetland loss.  NOAA SLR Viewer website.  

NASA's Sea Level Change Portal 

NASA provides the public very accessible videos, infographics, and animations about sea level changes. There is also a wealth of technical tools and data for those who want to dive deeper. NASA’s sea level website
