Figure 6. Simulation of existing conditions for a portion of the Scarborough River marsh system, delineated using tidal elevations of mean tide level, mean high water, and highest annual tide as proxies for the low marsh (MTL - MHW) and high marsh (MHW - HAT) areas. LIDAR data was queried to find all elevations within these ranges. Note that high marsh dominates the overall system. (Base imagery from Maine GIS. LIDAR data from Sanborn Mapping/FEMA. P.A.
