Abstract The report examined the potential impacts of accelerated sea level rise on coastal wetlands in the United States and found that sea level could potentially have a large effect on future wetland losses. Nationwide, a five to seven foot rise in sea level could result in 30 to 80 percent loss in coastal wetlands. Along underdeveloped coasts, a rise drowns the seaward wetlands and allows new wetlands to be created inland as formerly dry land is flooded. Unfortunately, the area just above sea level available for wetland creation is generally far less than the area of wetlands that would be lost. And if development exists behind the wetlands and is protected from sea level rise, there is even less opportunity for wetland creation. Because of the importance of wetlands, federal and state agencies should now begin to determine how to mitigate wetland loss from sea level rise.
