Focus Area(s)
Healthy Coastal Ecosystems, Resilient Coastal Communities and Economies

California Sea Grant develops sea-level rise science education and training materials.  These are tailored for the general public, coastal managers and planners, and educators across the State.

Our extension team are developing science education lessons, activities and field trips for informal and formal educators to expand engagement of diverse and underrepresented communities in STEM learning. 

We are also involved in creating science syntheses reports, guidance, and data visualization tools for California and local sea-level rise planning and decision making.  This includes science summaries tailored to specific coastal communities, advising federal sea-level rise tool and visualization product enhancements, and providing direct technical assistance to agencies and communities with understanding sea-level rise science and integrating it into their hazard or adaptation planning strategies.
