Barrier Island-Lagoon Systems

Project Summary
Project CodeALCC2011-02
Project Lead(s) U.S. Geological Survey
DescriptionThis effort will investigate the dominant and relative importance of physical processes shaping the modern Arctic coastline as well as decadal responses due to projected conditions out to the year 2100. This study will determine dominant forces responsible for projected changes to the arctic coastal landscape, and assess the likelihood of Arctic barrier island-lagoon system habitat inundation by seawater in response to changing ocean conditions related to global warming.
