Visiting the Plum Island Estuary

Went to MA to discuss the future of Plum Island marshes with stakeholders and local citizens, based on results from our new marsh accretion model. Plum Island marshes have high elevation capital, which means even though they can't keep pace with an accelerate rate of sea level rise, they can survive through 2100. However we expect by 2100 that Plum Island will convert from a high marsh system to a low marsh system.
