CanCoast - Change In Sea Level 2006-2099 Version 1.0 CanCoast is a geospatial database of the physical characteristics of Canada's marine coasts. It includes both feature classes that are not expected to change through time, and feature classes that are expected to change as climate changes. CanCoast includes: wave-height change with sea ice (early and late 21st century); sea-level change (early and late century); ground ice content; coastal materials; tidal range; and backshore slope. These are mapped to a common high-resolution shoreline and used to calculate indices that show the coastal sensitivity of Canada's marine coasts in modelled early and late 21st century climates. 2019-05-01 2019-09-17 Natural Resources Canada nrcan.gsc-geosciencedata-donneesgeoscience-cgc.rncan@canada.ca Form DescriptorsNature and EnvironmentScience and TechnologyCoastal and Marine Geologyrelative sea-level changeCoasts CanCoast - Change In Sea Level 2006-2099 Version 1.0HTML https://doi.org/10.4095/314669 CanCoast - Modification du niveau de la mer de 2006 à 2099, version 1.0HTML https://doi.org/10.4095/314669
