NJ Sea-Level Rise Reports

In 2016 Rutgers University convened a New Jersey Science and Technical Advisory Panel (STAP) on Sea-Level Rise and Changing Coastal Storms on behalf of the New Jersey Climate Change Alliance  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.

In 2019 Rutgers University re-convened the Panel on behalf of the State of New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection to update the 2016 report.   
The 2019 and 2016 reports are found below.
