Coastal Landscape Response to Sea-Level Rise Assessment for the Northeastern United States

Panels show varied landscape prior to sea-level rise and varied landscape response after sea-level rise has occurred.

Figure 1. The effects of sea-level rise will vary by differences in the geomorphology and ecology of the landscape.  Images show marsh (top left) rocky coast (top right), barrier beach (bottom left), and coastal bluff (bottom right).
