The issue of sea level rise is of great importance to the State, its policy makers and the citizens of North Carolina. Periodic updates using current data are vital to help inform planning and decision making.

The CRC therefore requests that the Science Panel conduct an annual review of any new and significant scientific literature and studies that address the range of implications of sea level rise at the State, sub-regional, and local scales.

If the Science Panel feels sufficient new information is available to warrant a report, or new analyses, they will present their findings to the CRC and the public in the form of oral presentations and/or written briefs/fact sheets. In this case, the Science Panel review will include any key data or information gaps that should be prioritized for additional collection/study and/or funding opportunities.

The CRC Science Panel provides the commission with scientific data and recommendations pertaining to coastal topics.
