CA LCC Project

Sustaining healthy ecosystems in the face of sea level rise

Project Information

The main goal of this project is to ensure that the 2011-13 climate change update to the Baylands Ecosystem Habitat Goals Report (Baylands Goals) and other key, ongoing conservation activities in the San Francisco Bay region use the latest information about the current and future status of San Francisco Bay tidal marsh ecosystems, particularly in the context of sea-level rise. The main product of the project will be the improved Sea Level Rise (SLR) Tool, specifically upgraded to inform the Baylands Goals Report update. The tool will continue to be available online at All data layers going into the tool are and will continue to be downloadable from the site.

Full Proposal Title: 
Sustaining healthy ecosystems in the face of sea level rise: Ensuring the Baylands Ecosystem Habitat Goals Report continues to inform acquisition, restoration, and management of the region’s baylands.
