Ella McDougall: Sea Level Rise Adaptation Strategies for Coastal Communities and Watersheds

Tijuana River National Estuarine Research Reserve
Imperial Beach, CA
June 18-August 25, 2019

This summer, Ella will spend 66% of her time working with the Tijuana River National Estuarine Research Reserve developing sea level rise adaptation strategies for coastal watersheds. She will gain knowledge about watershed ecosystem-based management and green-to-gray approaches to adaptation. She will also offer support in hosting NOAA coastal adaptation and implementation trainings, create a marine debris training manual, and engage with Baja elected officials and counterparts.

Scripp’s Center for Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation (CCCIA)

For a third of the summer, Ella will assist CCCIA with evaluation and development of feasibility for additional coastal community sites for Flood Risk – Sea Level Rise Pilots. She will also support the development of Climate Status Reports for various State Park coastal sites, and create a suite of tools/products for disseminating results and data to stakeholders.
