An updated Southern California project is targeted for completion in 2016. Preliminary data from a 100-year storm event and several sea level rise scenarios will be available late 2015. Funding provided from the California Coastal Conservancy with additional support from local jurisdictions will stimulate this multi-agency collaboration featuring top coastal and climate scientists from Scripps, Oregon State University, private sector, and USGS.
Model enhancements for Southern California include:
