Project Title: Assessing tidal marsh resilience to sea-level rise at broad geographic scales with multi-metric indices

Date: 2016

Principal Investigator(s): Raposa, K. B., et al. (2016).


Summary: Biological Conservation, 204, 263-275.

Tidal marshes and the ecosystem services they provide may be at risk from sea-level rise (SLR). Tidal marsh resilience to SLR can vary due to differences in local rates of SLR, geomorphology, sediment availability and other factors. Understanding differences in resilience is critical to inform coastal management and policy, but comparing resilience across marshes is hindered by a lack of simple, effective analysis tools.
