Vulnerability of New Jersey's Coastal Habitats to Sea Level Rise
This report is the product of a study that attempted to determine which developed areas in coastal New Jersey are vulnerable to sea-level rise in ways that could negatively impact sandy beach and wetland habitats. Using a GIS approach, the authors identified where development in vulnerable areas could restrict the migration of the shoreline. Similarly, the authors identified those areas where wetlands are either free to retreat or obstructed by development. The report is intended to be used in a way that can provide information for coastal management and development decisions.
