Projects & Reports > Delaware Sea Level Rise Vulnerability Assessment
Preparing for Tomorrow’s High Tide: Sea Level Rise Vulnerability Assessment for the State of Delaware was developed by the DNREC Delaware Coastal Programs with input, advice and guidance from members of Delaware’s Sea Level Rise Advisory Committee. It was formally approved by the Sea Level Rise Advisory Committee in May, 2012.
It contains background information about sea level rise, methods used to determine vulnerability and a comprehensive accounting of the extent and impacts that sea level rise will have on 79 resources in the state. The information contained within this document and its appendixes will be used by the Delaware Sea Level Rise Advisory Committee and other stakeholders to guide development of sea level rise adaptation strategies.
