U.S. Geological Survey data release,


This dataset consists of raster geotiff outputs from modeling vertical accretion and carbon accumulation in the Nisqually River Delta, Washington, USA. These rasters represent projections of future habitat type, change in surface elevation above Mean Sea Level, and total sediment carbon accumulation since 2011 in coastal wetland habitats. Projections were generated in 20-year increments for 100 years for five amounts of sea-level rise, three amounts of suspended sediment concentrations, and two alternative configurations of the U.S. Interstate-5 causeway as it crosses the Nisqually River to either prevent or allow inland habitat migration (a total of 30 scenarios). The full methods and results are described in detail in the parent [...]

These rasters were created to assist with climate adaptation planning within the Nisqually River Delta. These data can be used to visualize potential carbon accumulation in soils. The rasters can be used with geographic information systems (GIS) software for research purposes.
