                         Ricardo A. Alvarez was an invited contributing author for the peer reviewed report The Effects of Climate Change on Florida’s Ocean and Coastal Resources: A Special Report to the Florida Energy and Climate Commission and the People of Florida, published in 2009 by the Florida Oceans and Coastal Council with support from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and several other agencies. This report will be updated periodically, and it is in fact currently being reviewed for an upcoming updated publication later this year.
