Location: Big Sur Conference Room, Coastal Conservancy Offices, 10th floor, 1515 Clay Street, Oakland, CA
Presentation title: Understanding Local Sea Level Rise Scenarios on the Updated NOAA Sea Level Rise Viewer
NOAA’s Sea Level Rise Viewer has been available nationally since 2012. The Viewer has undergone subsequent updates over the past five years, but the recent 2017 update is the most significant to date. Among other features, the Viewer incorporates NOAA’s newly released sea level rise projections that will be used for the 4th National Climate Assessment.
Doug’s talk will briefly review historical sea level rise and current trends globally and locally, as well as future projections, uncertainty in projections, and deterministic versus probabilistic approaches. Doug will also speak about total water levels, nuisance flooding, and what cities are currently doing to address these issues. His presentation will conclude with a brief demo of the new features in NOAA’s Sea Level Rise Viewer. There will be ample time for discussion as a group as well.
Doug Marcy is a Coastal Hazards Specialist at the NOAA Office for Coastal Management in the Science and Geospatial Division. He has been with NOAA for 15 years working on flood and sea level mapping projects, storm surge assessments, and coastal hazards assessment projects. Doug has been the project manager for the SLR Viewer since its inception. Before that, Doug was a hydraulic engineer with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and a NOAA Coastal Management Fellow with the South Carolina coastal management program. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Geology, and a Master of Science in Coastal Geology.
