Abstract: 

This document reports on the multidisciplinary Santa Barbara Area Coastal Ecosystem Vulnerability Assessment (SBA CEVA) research effort. The target audience is local: land use planners and decision makers. Research sections address: climate change projections, watershed runoff, coastal hazards and shoreline change, estuaries, and beaches. Each section is written by leading experts and presents new, detailed research findings including: an introduction, methods, results/discussion, and key findings. The climate downscaling, coastal hazards and shoreline change and watershed runoff sections provide information about the physical environment critical to ecosystem functions. These results are not only useful for ecosystems discussed in this report; they also may be used to inform adaptation planning for other Santa Barbara area ecosystems and other built environments.
