Summary

Reason for Incorporating Sea-level Rise Transition Areas Sea-level rise is projected to have a profound impact on the people and natural communities of the South Atlantic coast. Both the transition of ecosystems and complete loss of land are projected to occur by 2050. Rather than planning for worst-case inundation scenarios, a recent focus has been placed on managing retreat of coastal wetlands as marshes migrate inland and ecosystems transition (Amundsen et al. 2010, Nicholls and Cazenave 2010, Rogers et al. 2014). This data layer depicts areas where transitions are likely to occur, but given the great uncertainty involved, does not attempt to distinguish between particular transitions (e.g., forested wetlands to open water are treated [...]
