Summary

The coastal region of California supports a wealth of ecosystem services including habitat provision forwildlife and fisheries. Tidal marshes, mudflats, and shallow bays within coastal estuaries link marine,freshwater and terrestrial habitats, and provide economic and recreational benefits to local communities.Climate change effects such as sealevelrise (SLR) are altering these habitats, but we know little abouthow these areas will change over the next 50–100 years. Our study examined the projected effects of threerecent SLR scenarios produced for the West Coast of North America on tidal marshes in California. Wecompiled physical and biological data, including coastal topography, tidal inundation, plant composition,and sediment accretion [...]
