Frequently Asked Questions regarding the New Jersey Science and Technical Advisory Panel (STAP) Study
In 2016, Rutgers University researchers convened a panel of scientists to assess projections of future sea-level and storm changes affecting the Garden State. To ensure the usability of their assessment, the scientists also consulted with state and local practitioners to discuss how they would integrate the science into their decisions to enhance the coastal resilience of New Jersey’s people, places, and assets. In 2019 the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection engaged Rutgers to conduct new consultations with panels of scientists and practitioners to update its 2016 work to reflect the most recent climate science.
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.
