General | Latest Info

For over a decade, State of Maryland has relied on scientific assessments of likely sea level in the future for its planning of facilities and for coastal management. Sea-Level Rise Projections were first included in the Comprehensive Assessment of Climate Change Impacts in Maryland that was part of the 2008 Plan of Action of the Commission on Climate Change. Because of emerging science relating to Sea-Level Rise, Commission's Scientific and Technical Working Group formed the Sea-Level Rise Expert Group to produce in 2013 report Updating Maryland's Sea-Level Rise Projections. The Maryland Commission on Climate Change Act of 2015 requires that the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science shall establish Science-base Sea-Level Rise Projections for Maryland's coastal areas and update them at least every five years. The report below constitutes an update of 2013 Projections. Projections in the Sea-Level Rise Projections for Maryland 2018 report are produced using a method yielding probability distributions of Sea-Level Rise for discrete time periods and under three greenhouse gas emissions pathways that affect the rate of global warming, and thus Sea-Level Rise. Method was published after 2013 Projections for Maryland, but has since been used for planning in the States of California, Washington, New Jersey and Delaware. New Projections do not differ substantially from those provided in 2013, but probability distributions can be useful in planning and regulation, infrastructure siting and design, estimation of changes in tidal range and storm surge, developing inundation mapping tools, and adaptation strategies for high-tide flooding and saltwater intrusion. In addition, consequences of failing to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in time to meet goals of the Paris Climate Agreement for Sea Level Maryland will experience later this century and beyond are make starkly apparent. Moreover, these projections do not fully take into account the much more rapid loss of polar ice that emerging Science indicates is looming later this century if emissions continue to grow and Earth's temperature does not stabilize.

Ambient Air Monitoring Program

Maryland uses a variety of monitoring techniques to address interstate pollutants traveling on prevailing winds into Maryland from surrounding States and regions. Such transported pollutants contribute up to approximately 70 % of pollutant levels in Maryland during bad air quality episodes. At times, transport pollution arriving in Maryland outweighs local emissions as the dominant contributor to Maryland's continued non-attainment status for National Ambient Air Quality Standards for ground-level ozone. On other occasions, depending on the weather, both transport and home grown pollution are equally important in Maryland's worst air pollution days. The consequences of transport pollution are significant. Many people come to Maryland to enjoy the natural beauty of the state's mountains, Chesapeake Bay, beaches, and parks. Hazy skies caused by transported pollution detract from regions ' appeal and cut into the economy and quality of life. Maryland is proud to take leadership role in addressing this key issue of Regional interstate pollution transport by using innovative Measurement techniques to investigate this regional problem.
