Cape Perpetua: Rising Sea Levels
Saturday, January 18, 2020
How Rising Sea Levels Would Affect the Estuaries along the Central Oregon Coast with Fran Recht, Habitat Program Manager, Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission & Vice Chair, Midcoast Watersheds Council.
Using maps and graphs of local estuaries Fran Recht will describe analyses done on the impacts of sea level rise on Oregon's tidal wetlands. This project led by Midcoast Watersheds Council assessed the extent of inundation that would occur in Oregon’s estuaries under five different sea level rise scenarios.
