The northern Gulf of Mexico coast benefits economically from a wealth of natural resources that depend on healthy coastal ecosystems. However, these ecosystems face a number of threats, including sea level rise and hurricanes. The impacts of sea level rise could be dramatic. Low-lying coastal areas are expected to experience.

We posit that before the onset of actual inundation, sea level rise will influence the species composition of coastal hardwood hammocks and buttonwood (Conocarpus erectus L.) forests of the Everglades National Park based on tolerance to drought and salinity. Precipitation is the major water source in Cited by:   Tidal saline wetlands along the U.S. Gulf of Mexico coast, such as mangrove forests, salt marshes, and salt flats, face survival challenges as sea levels rise rapidly and development along coastlines continues to grow. But, a recently published U.S. Geological Survey study shows there is hope for some of these at-risk Gulf coast wetlands. The northern Gulf of Mexico coastline was subdivided into separate reaches defined by each of the 60 coastal counties from Texas to Florida. Summaries of saltmarsh/mangrove area for each coastal county were obtained from published sources (Field et al., ) based on detailed grid sampling of the National Wetlands Inventory (NWI) database and habitat classification scheme Cited by:

Sea level variations escalating along eastern Gulf of Mexico coast. Sea level variations escalating along eastern Gulf of Mexico coast. 29 January WASHINGTON, D.C. — Around the globe, sea levels typically rise a little in summer and fall again in winter. Unlike global sea level rise, which is driven by temperature and is often cited. Sea-level rise, a dominant driving force of change for coastal regions, is becoming increasingly important as a hazard to humans and urban areas in the coastal zone worldwide as global climate. NCCOS staff and their partners held a workshop last month in Alabama to demonstrate and transfer sea level rise tools and data to regional coastal managers. Hosted by the Weeks Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (NERR), over 40 representatives from federal, state, and local agencies and non-governmental organizations engaged in training sessions and hands . PROJECT COMPLETED. The Science Issue and Relevance: The objective of this project is to integrate biological and hydrological models to develop management tools to deal with the projected ecological consequences of rising sea level in coastal south Florida. Our methodology and results are directly applicable to future-casting effects of sea level rise, storm surge .
