New Jersey Sea Level Rise Reports
In 2016 Rutgers University convened a New Jersey Science and Technical Advisory Panel (STAP) on Sea Level Rise and Changing Coastal Storms on behalf of the New Jersey Climate Change Alliance to synthesize for practitioners the most recent climate science needed to inform efforts to increase the resilience of New Jersey’s people, places, and assets (including infrastructure, communities and natural resources) to regional sea-level rise (SLR), changing coastal storms and the resulting flood risk.
In 2019 Rutgers University re-convened the Panel on behalf of the State of New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection to update the 2016 report.
The 2019 and 2016 reports are found below.

New Jersey's Rising Coastal Risk
New Jersey’s coast plays a vital role in the state’s economy and its residents’ way of life. While these communities have a long history of weathering storms and flooding, sea-level rise and changes in hurricane activity create new risks. This report quantifies the impact of changes in both hazards over the past four decades on flood and wind exposure and expected damage at the individual county level, and explores how New Jersey coastal risk will evolve in the years ahead as the climate changes.
