Abstract: Significant areas of wetland in coastal California are diked off from full tidal action. These areas retain considerable value as wetland, and their management and enhancement present unique opportunities and challenges. Successful enhancement design is facilitated by: 1) a clear statement of biological and hydrologic objectives; 2) site-specific information on topography, soils, runoff, tidal regime, and flow control structures; 3) judicious use of computer models.
