at the Southern California Coastal Water Research Project

3535 Harbor Blvd., Suite 110, Costa Mesa, CA 92626

 

Coastal managers in California are faced with the challenge of protecting coastal environments and resources from the impacts of climate change. Shoreline change resulting from sea-level rise, coastal erosion, storm activity, and related phenomena, threatens coastal communities, infrastructure and natural habitats. As more models and tools have become available to aid in conducting vulnerability assessments and adaptation strategies, there seems to be a need among coastal managers to better understand the following topics:

  • Modeling goes "beyond bathtub" by considering shoreline change
  • The range of impacts associated with shoreline change
  • The purpose and capabilities of existing models and tools that address shoreline change (e.g. some address storm activity impacts at short-time scales, some address long-term erosion impacts)
  • The data and type of information required to run the models
  • When/how is it appropriate to invest in model/tool use
  • The range of adaptation options

To overcome barriers in moving forward, scientists must hear from managers about management needs and tool utility–the "holy grail" of desired modeling to inform future research and modeling efforts. Likewise, managers must hear from scientists about the state-of-the science and application constraints. This workshop will serve as a venue for this bi-directional information transfer to occur.
