Pacific Northwest sea-level rise modelling - Habitat classification for site two (2075, A1B mean scenario)

Dec 10, 2010
In order to predict the impacts of climate change induced sea-level rise on Pacific Northwest coastal habitats, the Sea Level Affecting Marshes Model (SLAMM) was utilized to simulate future coastal habitat configurations under various sea-level rise scenarios. The model was run for 2025, 2050, 2075, and 2100. Historical or "initial condition" habitat classifications are also available for some sites. The sea-level rise scenarios include:

1. A1B greenhouse gas emission mean :  0.39 meter rise by 2100
2. A1B greenhouse gas emission maximum : 0.69 meter rise by 2100
3. 1 meter rise by 2100
4. 1.5 meter rise by 2100
5. 2 meter rise by 2100

Due to differing site conditions, local sea-level rise varies slightly from these figures, and the exact sea-level rise used by the model for each site can be found on page 29 of the report linked below.

This dataset includes data for site 2, which covers Padilla Bay, Skagit Bay, and Port Susan Bay in the Puget Sound. Further information on the study can be found at:
