Process Overview

Working with local stakeholders, we are developing a series of "Alternative Futures" landscape assessments for Gray's Harbor that combine current state-of-the-art predictions of possible climate changes impacts on this coastal community, biophysically-based models of flooding, erosion, and similar coastal processes, projections of human population growth and development associated with future growth, stakeholder-developed management policies guiding development pattern, zoning and response to natural hazards to better understand the possibilities and consequences of alternative managment strategies on a variety of community impacts, now and into the future.
