  • Description:
    Appendix A. Sea Level Rise and Coastal Flood Hazard Scenarios and Tools Interagency Task Force -- Appendix B. Climate-related RSL change for 2100 (in meters) corresponding to the low (17th) and high (83rd) percentile values (Table 5) relative to the GMSL rise amount for that scenario (as in Figure 9), respectively -- Appendix C. Total RSL change for 2100 (in meters) corresponding low and high percentile values (Table 5) relative to the GMSL rise amount for that scenario (as in Figure 13), respectively -- Appendix D. CMIP5 models used.

    "The Sea Level Rise and Coastal Flood Hazard Scenarios and Tools Interagency Task Force, jointly convened by the U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP) and the National Ocean Council (NOC), began its work in August 2015. The Task Force has focused its efforts on three primary tasks: 1) updating scenarios of global mean sea level (GMSL) rise, 2) integrating the global scenarios with regional factors contributing to sea level change for the entire U.S. coastline, and 3) incorporating these regionally appropriate scenarios within coastal risk management tools and capabilities deployed by individual agencies in support of the needs of specific stakeholder groups and user communities. This technical report focuses on the first two of these tasks and reports on the production of gridded relative sea level (RSL, which includes both ocean-level change and vertical land motion) projections for the United States associated with an updated set of GMSL scenarios. In addition to supporting the longer-term Task Force effort, this new product will be an important input into the USGCRP Sustained Assessment process and upcoming Fourth National Climate Assessment (NCA4) due in 2018. This report also serves as a key technical input into the in-progress USGCRP Climate Science Special Report (CSSR)"--Executive summary.
