Coastal resources: research: landslides and erosion: early warning system: County of San Diego.


Existing law establishes the Climate Ready Program in the State Coastal Conservancy to address the impacts and potential impacts of climate change on resources within the conservancy's jurisdiction. Existing law authorizes the conservancy to undertake projects within its jurisdiction, including projects related to beach and bluff erosion and other coastal hazards that threaten coastal communities, infrastructure, and natural resources. Existing law requires the Office of Emergency Services, in collaboration with the California Institute of Technology, the California Geological Survey, the University of California, the United States Geological Survey, the Alfred E. Alquist Seismic Safety Commission, and other stakeholders, to develop a comprehensive statewide earthquake early warning system in California through a public-private partnership, which is required to include, among other things, the installation of field sensors. This bill would appropriate from the General Fund the sum of $2,500,000 to the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California, San Diego to conduct research on coastal cliff landslides and erosion in the County of San Diego, as provided. The bill would require the research to be completed by January 1, 2024. The bill would require by no later than March 15, 2024, the institution to provide a report to the Legislature with recommendations for developing a coastal cliff landslide and erosion early warning system based on that research.
