Northern California 3.2 projections of coastal cliff retreat due to 21st century sea-level

Online link
Description This dataset contains projections of coastal cliff retreat and associated uncertainty across Northern California for future scenarios of sea-level rise (SLR) to include 25, 50, 75, 100, 125, 150, 175, 200, 250, 300, and 500 centimeters (cm) of SLR by the year 2100 and cover coastline from the Golden Gate Bridge to the California-Oregon state border. Present-day cliff-edge positions used as the baseline for projections are also included. Projections were made using numerical models and field observations such as historical cliff retreat rate, nearshore slope, coastal cliff height, and mean annual wave power, as part of Coastal Storm Modeling System (CoSMoS). See cited references and methods for more detail. [More]
