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.

The Appendices document San Rafael’s levees and shorelines and can be found here: Appendices-SLR White Paper
