IntroductionFigure 1


The Sea Level Rise Hazards and Decision Support project assesses the potential impacts of sea level rise and provides tools for coastal management decision making.   Historical and recent observations of coastal change are combined with model simulations of coastal environments such as barrier islands, wetlands, and coastal aquifers. A variety of methods including Bayesian networks are used to integrate the information to evaluate the probability of sea level rise impacts and communicate these to managers who face decisions to avoid, mitigate, or adapt to future hazards.
