Julie Beagle, Jeremy Lowe, Katie McKnight, Samuel Safran, Laura Tam, Sarah Jo Szambelan | April 1, 2019
Summary

As the climate continues to change, San Francisco Bay shoreline communities will need to adapt in order to build social and ecological resilience to rising sea levels. Given the complex and varied nature of the Bay shore, a science-based framework is essential to identify effective adaptation strategies that are appropriate for their particular settings and that take advantage of natural processes. This report proposes such a framework—Operational Landscape Units for San Francisco Bay.
