Sensitivity of the coasts of Canada to sea-level rise / J. Shaw ... [et al.].: M42-505E-PDF

"This report describes coastal and related geological processes, discusses how predicted global climate change could result in changes in sea level and modification of rates of coastal erosion, and uses information drawn from several sources to derive a system for rating the sensitivity of Canadian coasts to changes in sea level. Segments of Canada's coasts that are most sensitive to changes in sea level are identified. Critical regions where detailed studies should be conducted are discussed to determine the probable local impact of sea-level change and the development of the best mitigative measures."--Preface.
