People of the Guana Peninsula: Modeling Results

About the project

As climate change and development threaten the natural and cultural resources of the Guana Peninsula, this 2021 collaborative research project used a combination of archaeological investigations and applied anthropological methods to increase understanding of how people past and present have used the resources to inform their future management.

About this resource

The data presented in this report summarize findings based on the creation of a predictive model of estimated wetland reallocation and shoreline changes as a result of climate changes to the Guana Tolomato Matanzas National Estuarine Research Reserve in northeast Florida. The purpose of this model is to estimate, at a site-specific level, the timing of shoreline changes from global sea level rise that will impact cultural heritage sites and resources. The analysis was conducted for a 1.5- and 2-meter global mean sea level rise scenarios.
