Summary

Our study focused on seven marsh sites distributed throughout Humboldt Bay and largely withinrefuge boundaries; Hookton Slough Island, Salmon Creek marsh, White Slough marsh, EurekaSlough marsh, Jacoby Creek marsh, Mad River Slough marsh, and Manila marsh. These marshesprovide important habitat for marsh-dependent species, such as Humboldt Bay Owl’s Clover(Castilleja ambigua), Western Snowy Plover (Charadrius alexandrinus nivosus), and Steelhead(Oncorhynchus mykiss).

Purpose

Climate change scenarios typically address top-down global scale changes; thus, few are easily interpretable to local land managers or contain a vertical resolution that is useful at the local level for planning climate change adaptation strategies. Our studies are directed at a bottom-up local approach to evaluating sea-level rise (SLR) effects at the parcel scale (however relevant at a landscape scale), and provide information and data sets useful in assessing local responses.
