However, the capacity for these places to support human and natural communities in the face of rising sea levels varies widely. In response to this threat, scientists from The Nature Conservancy evaluated more than 10,000 coastal sites in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic to determine their ability to provide [...]

Purpose

The results provide resilience scores and details for 10,736 coastal sites, which can be used to: • Identify sites and tracts for land acquisition to preserve future migration space. • Identify where natural solution strategies aimed as conserving habitats for storm buffering or flood protection are likely to succeed. • Identify restoration sites which have ample migration space but for which the sustaining processes are disrupted or degraded due to human activities. • Promote existing conservation at sites with regionally significant resilience and diversity.
