Sea Level Rise on Georgia’s Coast

The River Basin Center received a Coastal Incentive Grant from the Georgia Department of Natural Resources Coastal Resources Division in 2008 to study the impacts of climate change on Georgia’s coastal communities.

The 3-year project, led by RBC Urban Ecologist Tim Carter, evaluated sea level rise scenarios in Georgia and their implications for areas of projected growth.

The UGA Center for Remote Sensing and Mapping Science, The Georgia Conservancy and Glynn County partnered with the RBC in this effort.
