Sea Level Rise

LBOR + OCAR + NBAOR Forum on Sea Level Rise & Coastal Erosion

Laguna Board of REALTORS® (LBOR) in association with Newport Beach Association of REALTORS® (NBAOR) and Orange County Association of REALTORS® (OCAR) hosted a forum on Sea Level Rise & Coastal Erosion led by Gary Griggs, UCSC Distinguished Professor of Earth Sciences, a leading scientist and researcher in the field of sea level rise and California’s coastal geology.

The forum covers California coastal geology, coastal geologic changes, shoreline & erosion processes, coastal hazards and coastal engineering, and sea level rise, evaluating the effectiveness of coastal protection structures and the impacts of coastal engineering projects (seawalls, jetties, breakwaters) on coastal processes and beaches; evaluating beach processes and quantifying littoral cell budgets and human impacts on these budgets; impacts of extreme events such as El Ninos on coastlines; the impacts of sea level rise on California's beaches and coastline; and coastal policies to reduce the impacts of hazards and sea level rise.
