FP1.3: Gain better understanding of how floodplain habitat may change due to pressures like climate change
Summarize accomplishments from:
Regional Priority Approach Description
Approach - Gain a better understanding of how floodplain habitat may change in the future due to pressures like climate change and population growth.
Desired Outcome - Improved understanding of how floodplain processes responses to climate change enable resilient floodplain protection and restoration.
Policy Needs - N/A
- Map and model hydrologic changes in the context of climate change (peak and low flows).
- Map and model sediment movement and channel formation changes in the context of climate change.
- Describe who the intended users of the final product will be and how they will engage in the project.
- Describe how this research will improve protection and restoration planning and site design.
- Describe the datasets, protocols, and analyses that will be used.
- Describe how you will leverage ongoing projects.
- Describe how additional data collection will be used to improve decision-making, if new sampling/surveys are proposed.
Local Context - Local context provides additional specificity on how a Regional Priority approach should be implemented in each local area; examples include sequencing, partners to consider, and critical areas. Local context for this Regional Priority approach is available here.
