WERC San Pablo NWR figures

Detailed Description

The elevation histogram for San Pablo Bay marsh shows the marsh platform is above MHW on average (Fig. 1). Data from the vegetation surveys indicate relatively high species richness (Fig. 2 and 3). The percent of time San Pablo Bay marsh is inundated varies throughout the year by season, with the most inundation during the winter (Fig. 4). Results from WARMER response model indicate that San Pablo Bay Marsh will lose relative elevation as sea levels rise (Fig. 5). The marsh platform at San Pablo Bay marsh is projected to transition to low marsh habitat by 2050 and be below mean sea level by 2080 (Fig. 6).
