Sea Level Rise Affecting Road Flooding and Marsh Migration Along CT's Coast


Sea Level Affecting Marsh Migration ( SLAMM) is a mathematical model developed by NOAA that uses digital elevation data and other information to simulate potential impacts of long-term sea level rise on wetlands and shorelines. CT DEEP recently completed a project to run the SLAMM model for the Connecticut coastline, to better understand how Connecticut's 21 largest coastal marshes and coastal area roads may respond to sea level rise (SLR). The model results have been turned into a new viewer on CT ECO.
