“…This is exemplified by the work of Thorne et al (2016Thorne et al ( , 2018 for several wetland sites in southern California including Upper Newport Bay, Mugu Lagoon, and Tijuana River Estuary. To date, local insights are best acquired through finescale SLR assessments conducted for individual wetland sites.…”

“…For instance, seagrass, a potentially important biogenic habitat that can be found in estuaries, has declined in area by 7% per year over the last two decades (Waycott et al, ). Wetland and marsh habitats are also projected to decline by 83% in some north‐eastern Pacific estuaries by 2110 due to sea‐level rise (Thorne et al, ). Given that estuaries may provide nursery habitat for a diversity of fish species (Able, ; Beck et al, ; Nagelkerken et al, ), there is a time‐sensitive need to further understand the nature of habitat for species of conservation or management concern to enable prioritization or protection of essential estuary habitats.…”
