New for 2015

The original PFLCC conservation scenarios were designed and released in 2014.

For the 2015 Impacts project, we have updated the scenario implementation, while retaining the original architecture.

The most significant change is the addition of vegetation change modeling for coastal areas affected by salt water.  We used USGS modeling of transitional saline wetlands change relative to sea level rise (see data sources for details).

We have also made selective updates to reflect land use and conservation changes in the 2010-2015 period.
