Geologic and Geophysical Methods Describe How Coasts Evolve

Understanding past coastal change in the northern Gulf of Mexico provides insight into modern and future trends.

Coastal Defense Tool Wins United Nations Award

The application won the top scientific award for addressing disaster and resilience planning.

Mangroves Protecting Corals from Climate Change

Reef corals are finding refuge from warming seawater temperatures, solar radiation and ocean acidification in an unlikely place

Science Preparing Communities for Tsunamis

USGS has many and diverse resources.

Ocean Warming Affecting Florida Reefs

Increased Temperatures Spell Trouble for Corals

Project assesses climate change impacts on Pacific atolls

As sea level continues to rise, storm-wave-induced overwash and inundation threaten infrastructure and freshwater resources

Natural Methane Seepage on U.S. Atlantic Ocean Margin

Widespread sea floor methane seepage on US Atlantic margin possibly related to gas hydrate breakdown.

Assesing wetland change and vulnerability

Integrating wetlands into coastal-change hazard assessments for a more comprehensive look at coastal ecosystem vulnerabilities.
