Summary

In the next 100 years, accelerated sea-level rise (SLR) and urbanization will greatly modify coastal landscapes across the globe. More than one-half of coastal wetlands in the contiguous United States are located along the Gulf of Mexico coast. In addition to supporting fish and wildlife habitat, these highly productive wetlands support many ecosystem goods and services including storm protection, recreation, clean water, and carbon sequestration. Historically, tidal saline wetlands (TSWs) have adapted to sea-level fluctuations through lateral and vertical movement on the landscape. As sea levels rise in the future, some TSWs will adapt and migrate landward in undeveloped low-lying areas where migration corridors exist; however, where [...]

Purpose

In this study, we quantified the potential for tidal saline wetland (i.e., mangrove forests, salt marshes, and salt flats) landward migration along the U.S. Gulf of Mexico coast under alternative future SLR scenarios and urban growth projections. Collectively, our approach and findings provide useful information for environmental planners working to develop future-focused adaptation strategies for conserving coastal landscapes and wetland ecosystem goods and services.

Sharing new data layers developed directly from the data would be appreciated by the WARC staff. Users should be aware that comparison with other datasets for the same area from other time periods may be inaccurate because of inconsistencies resulting from changes in mapping conventions, data collection procedures, and computer processes over time. These data have been approved for release by the USGS.
