Initial and Future Marsh Vegetation Conditions Under Three Sea-Level Rise Scenarios (Intermediate-Low, Intermediate, and Intermediate-High) from 2020 to 2100 in the Apalachicola-Big-Bend Region

Metadata Updated: July 6, 2024

Using the Hydro-MEM (Hydrodynamic-Marsh Equilibrium Model) (Alizad and others, 2016a; 2016b), the wetlands system within the Apalachicola-Big-Bend (ABB) region of Florida (FL) was assessed using initial and three sea-level rise (SLR) scenarios from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) (Sweet and others, 2017). The initial (init) scenario represents the present conditions in the year 2020. The intermediate-low (int-low) scenario projects 50 centimeters (cm) of SLR by 2100, the intermediate (int) scenario projects 1 meter (m) of SLR by 2100, and the intermediate-high (int-high) scenario projects 1.5 m of SLR by 2100. Hydro-MEM input data includes elevation, tidal forcings, river inflow, and field-collected parameters and couples a hydrodynamic and biological model to capture feedback processes in the wetland system. The model incorporates a spatially-varying marsh parabola parametrization and considers SLR-induced salinity intrusion proxy in the system (Alizad and others, 2022b). This data release (Alizad and others, 2022a) includes the initial and future conditions under three SLR scenarios and model outputs of marsh vegetation type. For further information regarding model input generation and visualization of model output, refer to Alizad and others (2016a).
