Adapting to Rising Tides

San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission (BCDC). 2018
Flooding Sea level rise Snowpack
Data, tools, and research Planning and policy guidance
Adapting to Rising Tides (ART) is a program of the San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission (BCDC) that identifies how current and future flooding will affect communities, infrastructure, ecosystems and economy in the San Francisco Bay Area. The ART Program is integrating adaptation into local and regional planning and decision-making by leading collaborative adaptation planning projects, building regional capacity for adaptation, and providing a portfolio of resources, including how-to guides, findings by sector and issue, and maps and data products.

Adapting to Rising Tides: Vulnerability & Risk Assessment Report - Alameda County

San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission (BCDC). 2012
Flooding Sea level rise
Assessment
Adapting to Rising Tides (ART) is a program of the San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission (BCDC), which brings together local, regional, state and federal agencies and organizations, as well as non-profit and private associations for a collaborative planning project on sea level rise and climate change. This report is one of several products from these planning efforts. Specifically it is a focused assessment of Alameda County’s shoreline and flood inundation vulnerability due to future sea level rise. For the project an innovative mapping approach, which allows a single map to represent multiple potential future sea level rise and storm surge scenarios, was used that can be applied to other areas. The work presented in this report can inform near-term actions to address sea level rise. It can also inform when (i.e., at what level of sea level rise), we pass a tipping point where discrete actions along the shoreline are no longer sufficient to address these growing threats.

Alameda County Climate Change and Health Profile Report

California Department of Public Health. 2017
Assessment
This Climate Change and Health Profile Report is a county-specific report designed to help Alameda County prepare for the health impacts related to climate change through adaptation planning. The report presents projections for county and regional climate impacts, the climate-related health risks, and local populations that could be vulnerable to climate effects.

Alpine County Climate Change and Health Profile Report

California Department of Public Health. 2017
Assessment
This Climate Change and Health Profile Report is a county-specific report designed to help Alpine County prepare for the health impacts related to climate change through adaptation planning. The report presents projections for county and regional climate impacts, the climate-related health risks, and local populations that could be vulnerable to climate effects.

Amador County Climate Change and Health Profile Report

California Department of Public Health. 2017
Assessment
This Climate Change and Health Profile Report is a county-specific report designed to help Amador County prepare for the health impacts related to climate change through adaptation planning. The report presents projections for county and regional climate impacts, the climate-related health risks, and local populations that could be vulnerable to climate effects.

Annual Hydroclimate Report

Office of the State Climatologist of California. 2016
Drought Extreme heat Extreme storms Sea level rise Snowpack Temperature Wildfire
Assessment Data, tools, and research
The Hydroclimate Report Water Year 2016 updates the 2015 report with data from Water Year 2016. This report includes key indicators for hydrology and climate in California and is updated annually with the newest available data to track important trends, provide a compilation of indicators, and provide graphical visualization of data trends that are of interest to water managers, the media, State government, and the research community. The report provides information on annual precipitation, annual air temperature, snowpack, rain and snow trends, sea levels and more.

Big Bear Roof Replacements - Safeguarding California Example

California Natural Resources Agency. 2018
Wildfire
Project or Example
California state agencies collaborated to compile each of these examples, associated with Safeguarding California's 2018 update, to show how California is preparing for and adjusting to various extreme events brought on by climate change. Each of these examples highlights unique strategies, funded by the state, to combat and adapt to the effects of climate change. The examples are tagged with icons from the Safeguarding California Report, classifying stories by sector. This example highlights a state and local partnership to remove roof wood shingles from high-risk structures for wildfire.

Biogeographic Information and Observation System (BIOS)

California Department of Fish and Wildlife. 2018
Data, tools, and research
The Biogeographic Information and Observation System (BIOS) is a system designed to enable the management, visualization, and analysis of biogeographic data collected by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife and its partner organizations. BIOS collects data for any environmental/biological information with a spatial component, allowing users to view and analyze environmental data such as rare plants and animals, timberland, habitat connectivity, and renewable energy.
