This project seeks to understand how climate and various socioeconomic factors may change forest and landowner decisions; and how forest loss may affect water quality and drainage patterns along the coast. The team will develop a framework that includes 30-year land use and land cover (LULC) scenarios to predict future coastal ecosystem conditions.
