Decisions about the future of Suisun Marsh must be well informed if they are to have positive and predictable outcomes. Delineating agents of change in the marsh is a fundamental step in the decision-making process, as the separate and combined effects of agents of change inform scenarios for alternative futures of the marsh. This chapter reviews a dozen important drivers of change in Suisun Marsh: (1) climate change, (2) reduced sediment supply, (3) invasive alien species, (4) warmer temperatures, (5) earthquakes, (6) large-scale regional tidal restoration, (7) watershed land-use change, (8) delta water operations, (9) salinity management, (10) managed wetlands operations, (11) management of endangered species, and (12) public policy and institutions.

Keywords:   climate change, sediment supply, earthquakes, tidal restoration, land-use change, delta operations, salinity, invasive alien species, endangered species, public policy
