Ecological Effects of Sea Level Rise (ESLR)

The ESLR program name was shortened in 2020, and was formerly known as the Ecological Effects of Sea Level Rise Program (EESLR).

ESLR is a multidisciplinary research program that emphasizes the use of integrated models and tools of dynamic physical and biological processes capable of evaluating vulnerability and resilience of our coasts under multiple sea level rise (SLR), inundation, and management scenarios to inform coastal restoration, land management, and planning activities.

The overall goal of this solicitation is to facilitate informed adaptation planning and coastal management decisions that account for the effects of SLR and climate change through support and leveraging of mature modeling approaches by investigators supported by ESLR and EESLR projects. This solicitation aims to support approaches capable of evaluating the performance of natural and conventional flood mitigation projects and policy changes to subsequently inform the development of applications to other granting programs that can support the flood mitigation projects and planning exercises.
