Description: 

RFP Closed. NOAA announced funding to evaluate and quantify the ability of coastal natural and nature-based features to mitigate the effects of sea level rise, storm surge, flooding, and wave run-up on coastal ecosystems and communities. Proposals should model the impacts of sea level rise and quantify the vulnerability and resilience of communities to inundation and sea level rise under various deployment levels of nature-based ecosystems, which include forests, wetlands, floodplains, dune systems, seagrasses, barrier islands, and reefs.
