Effects of Sea Level Rise on New England Salt Marshes

Webinar Brief Resource
October 2018

The New England NERRs developed and delivered a workshop on sea level rise and salt marshes, strengthening NERRS connections while providing an important information sharing opportunity for the larger community. The workshop increased knowledge of the regional status and trends of salt marsh condition; increased awareness of partnership and collaboration opportunities; improved connections between research, management, and restoration sectors; created a more robust information sharing network; and increased awareness of NERRs as unique sites suitable for long-term research and management “test beds” for management strategies.

These slides summarize a webinar given by Jennifer West of the Narragansett Bay Reserve on October 23, 2018 about her 2017 Science Transfer project that hosted a workshop to discuss the growing body of literature on salt marshes and sea level rise.
