The Monterey Bay Sanctuary Foundation
Monterey Bay Sea Level Rise and Vulnerability Assessment - Technical Methods Report was prepared as part of an ongoing effort to help local communities in their required planning processes such as Local Coastal Programs (LCP), and General Plans. ESA PWA specifically prepared the report for the Monterey Bay Sanctuary Foundation. The present study improved the methods from the Pacific Institute Study and applied them to the Monterey Bay study area with higher resolution local data and review by local experts. The report acts as a compendium to spatial data generated for a cross county effort to understand sea level rise in Monterey Bay. This report provides detailed documentation of the spatial analysis used to map erosion and flood hazards under future sea level rise scenarios. This report complements the metadata for actual geospatial information system (GIS) layers.
