Summary

In order to predict the impacts of climate change induced sea-level rise on Pacific Northwest coastal habitats, the Sea Level Affecting Marshes Model (SLAMM) was utilized to simulate future coastal habitat configurations under various sea-level rise scenarios. The model was run for 2025, 2050, 2075, and 2100. Historical or "initial condition" habitat classifications are also available for some sites. The sea-level rise scenarios include: 1. A1B greenhouse gas emission mean : 0.39 meter rise by 2100 2. A1B greenhouse gas emission maximum : 0.69 meter rise by 2100 3. 1 meter rise by 2100 4. 1.5 meter rise by 2100 5. 2 meter rise by 2100 Due to differing site conditions, local sea-level rise varies slightly from these figures, and [...]
