    areas such as Gulf of Farallones and Cordell Bank National Marine Sanctuaries and the San Francisco Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve as well as over 7 million people the region serves as an ideal area for the variety of NOAA and partner programs to help achieve the vision of the NOAA Sentinel Site Program The NOAA Sentinel Site Program provides a place based issue driven approach to ask and answer questions of local regional and national significance that affect both NOAA Trust Resources and the surrounding communities that will leverage existing assets programs and resources The effort for the SF Bay Sentinel Site Cooperative is led by NOAA s Coastal Services Center Gulf of the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary and two NOAA state partnerships SF Bay Conservation and Development Commission and SF Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve The SF Bay Area Sentinel Site Cooperative combines and enhances current NOAA and partner efforts on climate change projects and programs addressing sea level rise and storms ranging from Bodega Bay to Ano Nuevo along the coast and San Francisco Bay such as Our Coast Our Future Planning for Sea Level Rise and Storm Hazards Within the Bay Area Bay Area Ecosystems Climate

    includes the Apalachicola Weeks Bay and Grand Bay National Estuarine Research Reserves as well as several National Wildlife Refuges and National Parks This region with low level topography and extensive marsh and other critical habitats is highly susceptible to the effects of sea level change SLC The combined effects of sea level rise and tropical storms can have dramatic impacts on coastal communities and ecosystems including more flooding faster erosion land loss and saltwater intrusion into freshwater resources Impacts can also reach offshore to valuable resources like oyster reefs and seagrass beds Considerable ongoing monitoring and research activities particularly within three NERRs sites provide the baseline information and parameters required for an integrative ecosystem approach to addressing SLC Building off of an NCCOS funded project this Cooperative would leverage the combined capabilities of three NERRs NOS the Gulf of Mexico Alliance and the NOAA Gulf Regional Collaboration Team to assess the impacts of SLC and develop capabilities and tools to facilitate conservation of coastal resources by local state and regional managers Key products will include coupled models of hydrodynamics sedimentation salinity and vegetation dynamics as well as classified maps that delineate high and low risk areas These tools and products

    median conditions for the N C coast and is a region with a high concentration of marine science facilities Future expansion of this network will include the entire N C coast which offers a gradient in sea level rise vulnerability from low lying lagoonal microtidal estuaries to small highly flushed mesotidal estuaries The coast of North Carolina has one of the highest vulnerabilities to sea level change on the Atlantic coast due to its high wave exposure low relief coastal slope and abundance of barrier islands The high concentration of marine science facilities existing water level and shoreline monitoring stations updated seamless bathytopology and layers of coastal and marine protected areas ensures that regional sea level changes and their consequences will be documented with unparalleled accuracy to inform coastal management decisions Biogeographic provinces overlap on the N C coast where signals of response to climate change will be first detected and most significant Furthermore the extensive marsh and seagrass systems sweeping beaches and sheltered harbors support a high concentration of coastal commerce including shipping commercial and recreational fishing and tourism These industries and associated populations are highly vulnerable to sea level rise nationwide Thus the lessons learned at the N
