This document presents a “white paper” on the topic of sea level rise. This topic has been a growing concern in the last decade as studies continue to report and confirm its direct connection to climate change associated with global warming. This paper was prepared as a ‘first step’ in responding to the need to prepare for shoreline defense in the original San Rafael Climate Change Action Plan (CCAP), which was adopted in 2009.
