SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Climate Change Science Program (CCSP) was established by the President in 2002 to coordinate and integrate scientific research on global change and climate change sponsored by 13 participating departments and agencies of the U.S. Government. The CCSP is charged with preparing information resources that promote climate-related discussions and decisions, including scientific synthesis and assessment analyses that support evaluation of important policy issues. Synthesis and Assessment Product 4.1 analyzes information from the ongoing mapping efforts by federal and nonfederal researchers related to the implications of rising sea level. The report will also develop a plan for sea level rise research to answer the questions that are most urgent for nearterm decision-making. This report will provide information that supports the specific goal in Chapter 9 of the Strategic Plan for the Climate Change Science Program to analyze how coastal environmental programs can be improved to adapt to sea level rise while enhancing economic growth.
