The spike in the crab population in Maine’s Scarborough Marsh is a precursor to rising sea levels that will ultimately flood the marsh, according to an article in the Bangor Daily News.
A town workshop recently took a look over the horizon to assess if and how the marsh can absorb elevated sea levels and endure the higher storm tides and surges that will accompany catastrophic weather events. Data presented at the workshop suggested sea levels elevated up to 3 feet by the end of the century could place a substantial portion of the marsh under water and cause storm-related flooding on local roads and railroad tracks.
