Adapting to Sea Level Rise in the San Francisco Bay Area

This document is the result of an independent study conducted in the spring semester, 2011.  The report seeks to create a framework for planning for sea level rise in the San Francisco Bay Area through an academic literature review, two case studies, and a multidisciplinary examination of state and local context.  The report concludes with a general planning framework and San Francisco-specific recommendations.
