Establishment of the Coastal Elevations and Sea Level Rise 
Advisory Committee

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Notice; establishment of advisory committee.


SUMMARY: As required by section 9(a)(2) of the Federal Advisory 
Committee Act, we are giving notice that EPA is establishing the 
Coastal Elevations and Sea Level Rise Advisory Committee (CESLAC). The 
purpose of this Committee is to provide advice on the conduct of a 
study titled Coastal Elevations and Sensitivity to Sea Level Rise to be 
conducted as part of the U.S. Climate Change Science Program (CCSP). It 
is part of a comprehensive assessment of issues identified by the 
CCSP's Strategic Plan for the Climate Change Science Program. CESLAC 
will advise on the specific issues which should be addressed in the 
assessment, appropriate technical approaches, the nature of information 
relevant to decision makers, the content of the assessment report, and 
other scientific and technical matters that may be found to be 
important to the successful completion of the study. EPA has determined 
that this advisory committee is in the public interest and will assist 
the Agency in performing its duties under the Clean Water Act, Clean 
Air Act and the Global Climate Protection Act. Balanced membership will 
be achieved by including individuals from the Federal Government, State 
and/or local governments, the scientific community, non-governmental 
organizations and the private sector with expertise, experience, 
knowledge and interests essential to, or affected by, the successful 
completion of the study titled Coastal Elevations and Sensitivity to 
Sea Level Rise. Copies of the Committee Charter will be filed with the 
appropriate congressional committees and the Library of Congress.
