This is a project of the NOAA National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science, funded by a NOAA Ecological Effects of Sea Level Rise grant. The project seeks to understand how estuaries, like Los Cerritos Wetlands, will change with sea level rise, and then work to develop natural and nature-based solutions, and promote collaborative networks to understand tradeoffs between management strategies. USC Sea Grant advances Marshes on the Margin project by providing expertise and leading case study workshops.
