Dan Rizza

Program on Sea Level Rise Manager

Dan Rizza manages the Program on Sea Level Rise at Climate Central, a non-profit research organization providing localized, evidence-based tools and information on climate science, impacts & solutions. The program is dedicated to getting localized, science-based information, tools, and visuals related to sea-level rise and coastal flooding into the hands of coastal stakeholders.


Climate Central is an independent nonprofit organization that was founded in 2008 to meet the need for a central authoritative source for climate change information.

Climate Central scientists publish peer-reviewed research on climate science; energy; impacts such as sea level rise; climate attribution and more. But our work isn't confined to scientific journals. We investigate and synthesize weather and climate data and science to equip local communities and media with the tools they need to visualize the threat of climate change and the need for practical solutions.
