Landward migration zones (“LMZs”) are areas that could become future tidal wetlands under sea level rise. This slideshow explains the methods and results of the Estuary Technical Group’s mapping of potential future tidal wetlands for all the estuaries on Oregon’s outer coast.

Throughout the Pacific Northwest, there is increasing recognition of estuarine contributions to watershed and marine processes. This recognition has generated new interest in tidal wetland conservation and restoration. In Oregon, overall losses of tidal wetlands since the 1850’s are estimated at 70% (Christy 2004, Good 2000, Boule and Bierly 1987, Thomas 1983), supporting the need […]
