List of NPS Parks to be Studied for Vulnerability to Sea Level Change and Storm Surge

I have been asked by a number of agencies to provide a list of the NPS park units my research team is currently investigating as part of our project to study the potential impact of sea level change and storm surge in our national parks. In our original press release we stated that we anticipated that we would study 105 coastal parks. After discussing this project with several regional managers at NPS we have decided to broaden our study to include a few more parks. We have agreed to study the following 110 parks that we estimate will be vulnerable to sea level rise along with a further 7 park units that nearest tide gauge data indicate are experiencing decreasing relative sea levels:
