Keeping Pace: A Short Guide to Navigating Sea-Level Rise Models

This site helps coastal decision makers select an appropriate sea level rise model for their situation. The brief guide describes various categories of sea level rise models and situations for which they are best applied.

When coastal decision makers want to understand how sea level rise might impact their community, they may be overwhelmed by the number of tools and data models available for securing this information. The Keeping Pace guide describes a range of concepts that can help coastal communities undertand these concepts and select an appropriate model for their particular situation.

The guide explains four fundamental concepts related to sea level rise data, and then describes six categories of sea level rise models or tools. The site also offers a list of available models and tools and access to the U.S. Geological Survey Professional Paper 1815: "Sea-level rise modeling handbook: Resource guide for coastal land managers, engineers, and scientists."
