The New Jersey Climate Adaptation Alliance Advisory Committee requested that Rutgers University convene a Science and Technical Advisory Panel (STAP) to synthesize for practitioners the most recent climate science needed to inform efforts to increase the resilience of New Jersey’s people, places, and assets (including infrastructure, communities and natural resources) to regional sea-level rise (SLR), changing coastal storms and the resulting flood risk.
The outputs of this effort include:
pdf Assessing New Jersey’s Exposure to Sea-Level Rise and Coastal Storms: Report of the New Jersey Climate Adaptation Alliance Science and Technical Advisory Panel (1.76 MB) (which summarizes the deliberations of the scientists who participated in the STAP).
pdf Assessing New Jersey’s Exposure to Sea-Level Rise and Coastal Storms: A Companion Report to the New Jersey Climate Adaptation Alliance Science and Technical Advisory Panel Report (2.50 MB) (which describes how coastal hazard data and coastal climate change impacts are currently being addressed in New Jersey).
pdf Integrating Science into Coastal Resilience Planning and Decision Making (662 KB) (which is a high level summary of the two reports noted above).
