Connecting with Local Communities to Document Sea Level Rise in North Carolina
Description: A new project to understand and predict changes in North Carolina coastal marshes, and their capacity to protect shorelines from the combined impacts of sea-level rise, tides, and storm surge, combines research results and outreach with the North Carolina King Tides Project, documenting water levels through photography.
