How certain are the predictions?

Coastal California is already experiencing the early impacts of rising sea levels, including more extensive coastal flooding during storms, periodic tidal flooding and increased coastal erosion. Sea level rise science is constantly being improved upon to become more fine-tuned and to accommodate new information and technological innovation. While specific impacts and timelines are always becoming more refined, we will use the best available science to plan for and adapt to sea level rise, consistent with state guidance.
