Summary

This project evaluates the effects of global climate change and sea level rise on estuarine intertidal habitat in the San Francisco Bay and the Pacific Flyway migratory waterbirds that rely on this habitat. Phase 2 of this project is a continuation of work to evaluate the effects of global climate change and sea level rise (SLR) on intertidal shoals in the San Francisco Bay Estuary and the migratory waterbirds that rely on this critically important resource in the Pacific Flyway. The primary objectives are to: 1) use downscaled global climate change models to translate SLR and climate scenarios into habitat quantity predictions through Delft3D and Dflow-FM (unstructured grid) geomorphic modeling; 2) model the response of avian prey [...]

Purpose

U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Division of Migratory Birds Management, San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuges among others), California Department of Fish and Game, South Bay Salt Pond Restoration Project, Bay Conservation and Development Commission (Subtidal Habitat Goals) U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (South Bay Shoreline Study), Department of Water Resources, the CALFED Bay/Delta Program (the state and federal resource agencies responsible for management of this estuary who funded the CASCaDE project to develop the geomorphic model), as well as non-governmental organizations concerned with waterbird populations along the Pacific Flyway.
