Summary

Northeast Region Marsh Migration is one of a suite of products from the Nature’s Network project. Based on sea level rise (SLR) analysis by NOAA, this dataset depicts potential marsh migration zones at various sea level rise scenarios from 0-6’. Identification of suitable uplands adjacent to tidal wetlands is based on topography, habitat type, land use, and development, and can be used for facilitating marsh migration through land protection and/or management. The NOAA Coastal Change Analysis Program (CCAP) mapped the initial (current) distribution of potential marshes and and other coastal land cover types. The Detailed Method for Mapping Sea Level Rise Marsh Migration provides the full methodology for the data used to create the [...]

Purpose

Northeast Region Marsh Migration is one of a suite of products from the Nature’s Network (naturesnetwork.org) project. Marsh Migration addresses the unique problem of connectivity of tidal marsh habitat to adjacent uplands and the need for marshes to move in response to sea level rise. The Marsh Migration data identify which of the best opportunities for tidal marsh habitat have the greatest potential for upland migration with advancing sea ­levels. Tidal marshes are among the most productive habitats on earth. The identification of tidal marsh in proximity to upland zones of migration, given projected sea­ level rise, may be applied to help prioritize conservation and management actions aimed at encouraging a healthy extent of tidal marsh habitat into the future. The purpose of the data is to assess the undeveloped land available for marsh migration in response to sea level rise and to identify marshes in highest quality ecological condition that may be targets for conservation.
