Description

See also: Tidal Wetlands, Habitat Restoration

During this program, researchers unveiled preliminary analysis of predicted inundation patterns due to sea level rise in the central Monterey Bay area over the next 100 years.  Participants were asked how researchers might adapt their analysis to the needs of farmers, ranchers, home owners, conservation groups, business owners, and public works.  They were also asked how to improve communication and outreach to others interested in the impacts of sea level rise.

Participants indicated interest in better economic impacts analysis as well as working to better understand how future storm patterns might interact with sea level rise.
