Project Decision Support Framework for Sea-level Rise Impacts
One of the principal impacts of sea-level rise will be the loss of land in coastal areas through erosion and submergence of the coastal landscape. However, changes vary across space and time and are difficult to predict because landforms such as beaches, barriers, and marshes can respond to sea level rise in complicated, dynamic ways. This project developed decision support models to address critical management decisions at regional and local scales, considering both dynamic and simple inundation responses to sea-level rise.

Project North Atlantic Aquatic Connectivity Collaborative
This project is developing a partner-driven, science-based approach for identifying and prioritizing culvert road stream crossings in the area impacted by Hurricane Sandy for increasing resilience to future floods while improving aquatic connectivity for fish passage. The resulting information and tools will be used to inform and improve decision making by towns, states and other key decision makers.

Project Identifying Resilient Sites for Coastal Conservation
Sea levels are expected to rise by one to six feet over the next century, and coastal sites vary markedly in their ability to accommodate such inundation. In response to this threat, scientists from The Nature Conservancy evaluated 10,736 sites in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic for the size, configuration and adequacy of their migration space, and for the natural processes necessary to support the migration of coastal habitats in response to sea-level rise.

Meet the new Coastal Resilience Research Associate
Climate scientist Emily Powell sees an opportunity to combine her expertise and her dedication to sharing information in a new role working with coastal LCCs on resilience issues: “I wanted to get back to the space between research, science, and communications, working as a liaison between data, tools, and the people who need them."

Habitat inventories offer new perspective on North Carolina’s coast
A feature story in Coastal Review Online -- a news service covering the North Carolina coastline -- highlights a recently completed project to inventory modifications to beach and tidal inlet habitats from Maine to North Carolina that is providing new information to managers in the coastal zone.

Translating science into a sustainable future for the Great Marsh
During an April workshop at the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge in Newburyport, Mass., scientists and stakeholders met to start an important conversation about using the best available science to inform decisions that will affect a 20,000-acre tidal marsh threatened by climate change.
