Climate Change Challenge: rising seas

Grant Award: $97,625; Year Awarded: 2013

A “Living Shoreline” uses a variety of structural and organic materials to provide shoreline protection and it provides better protection to vulnerable habitats and human communities in the face of climate change. This project will test a variety of methodologies and materials to further the understanding and use of living shorelines as an alternative to hardened shorelines as a climate adaptation strategy in the South Atlantic coastal region.
