Description

This report presents the results of an initial study on the impacts of sea level rise on local groundwater to inform the Humboldt Bay Sea Level Rise Adaptation Planning (HBSLRAP) project. The study uses U.S. Geological Survey’s (USGS) mathematical model, SUTRA (Saturated-Unsaturated-Transport), in the Eureka–Arcata coastal plain. The report includes a literature review on sea level rise and groundwater simulation, the mathematical model, and the results and conclusions of the study.
