Case Study
Sector Addressed: 
Conservation / Restoration

The Elkhorn Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve (ESNERR) is located in California. Scientists are looking to determine the marsh sites at the reserve that will be able to withstand the effects of sea level rise. With this information, conservation and restoration strategies can be developed to support the most resilient marsh sites.
