Virtual Reality Sea Level Rise Explorer
The Sea Level Rise Explorer Virtual Reality Experience:
Come Have the Experience!
The Sea Level Rise Explorer is a virtual reality experience designed to immerse users in modeled representations of how sea level rise impacts, such as coastal flooding and coastal erosion, might affect the beaches and bluffs in Santa Cruz. The experience is available in both English and Spanish. This project was funded by a grant from the American Geophysicist's Union and supplements a Coastal Commission grant supporting community engagement for the Resilient Coast Santa Cruz Initiative. See some of the press about the project from NPR, The Santa Cruz Sentiinel, and KSBW News. The project is a collaboration between Santa Cruz Public Libraries, City of Santa Cruz, Virtual Planet Technologies, with support form Swan Dive Media.
