Hurricane Sandy Response – Linking the Delmarva Peninsula’s Geologic Framework to Coastal Vulnerability

Coastal Process and Regional Collaborations

Physical and ecological processes (e.g., currents, waves, marsh die off) also contribute to coastal evolution. The studies mentioned below are coordinated with the offshore geology project. The combined results of these research efforts will improve understanding of vulnerability along the coastal continuum, onshore to offshore.

Current USGS projects studying the estuaries, wetlands and barrier islands of the Delmarva Peninsula:

Hurricane Sandy Response – Estuarine Physical Response

Hurricane Sandy Response - Barrier Island and Estuarine Wetland Physical Change Assessment

 

University of Dealware

 

Collaborators at the University of Delaware, in conjunction with the National Park Service, study the inner shoreface and surfzone of Assateague Island National Seashore.

The USGS is a partner in the Mid-Atlantic Coastal Resilience Institute (MACRI).  This is a partnership of institutions that conduct research in the Mid-Atlantic Coastal Zone. The partnership facilitates the coordination of ongoing coastal research projects, regional research resources and stakeholder networks.
