Because models of marsh response to sea-level rise provide a wealth of useful information to natural resource managers, it is important to be able to understand the similarities and differences among models.

Status: Active

There are many models that predict changes that marshes may experience as sea levels rise. However, they can differ in their purpose, the inputs they consider, and the outputs. This variety allows models to be used in an array of applications, but these differences can make it difficult for decision-makers to know which models to use and for what purposes.

This project brings together stakeholder input, modelers, and sea-level rise experts to better discuss and analyze these differences between models and model outputs.

As a result of this work, decision-makers will be able to more effectively apply model outputs to improve resilience to sea-level rise.
