Figure 3. Existing conditions within the study area. Marsh areas (below HAT) are dominated by high marsh (area between MHW-HAT), which accounts for 24% of the study area, while upland areas (no colors) account for approximately 48% of the study area. Low marsh (between OW-MHW) and open water areas account evenly for the remaining 28%.
