Sea-Level Rise and the Fate of Tidal Wetlands

Randall W. Parkinson

Abstract


Tidal wetlands provide numerous ecological functions and protect urban areas from saltwater intrusion and storm surge. Because these areas occur at the land-sea interface they are strongly influenced by changing sea-level elevation. Hence, it is of interest to quantify the effects of sea-level rise anticipated to accompany global climate change into the next century.
