Understanding Coastal Change
Coastal change poses potential risk to coastal communities across the nation. Powerful storms generate surge, waves and currents that can move large amounts of sediment, destroy roads, buildings and other critical infrastructure as well as alter natural habitats. The USGS studies the various factors that contribute to coastal change vulnerability including historical geologic framework, sediment supply and transport, sea-level rise, and how extreme storm events affect rates and impacts of coastal change.
