Identification and mapping of potential sites suitable for saltmarsh habitat creation in Scotland through manged realignment under current and future sea levels



This dataset comprises of the outputs from geospatial model used to identify and map sites suitable for the creation of new saltmarsh habitat across the Scottish coast under current and future sea levels.

The work was carried as part of the ClimateXChange project (IQ20-201) - Blue carbon potential of Scottish inter-tidal wetlands and the implications of sea-level rise: policy brief.
