Exploring permafrost coastal erosion in the Arctic

The remote town of Barrow, Alaska, home to more than 4,000 people, touts picturesque views of the Arctic Ocean as well as an unparalleled connection to the Alaskan wild, but underneath its stunning beauty lies a major global crisis — permafrost coastal erosion — causing Barrow to gradually slip into the sea.

USGS models: Florence likely to cause short- and long-term beach erosion

Hurricane Florence, a dangerous Category 4 hurricane, is very likely to cause beach erosion along about three-quarters of the North Carolina coast as it makes landfall, and to overwash about 15 percent of that state’s dunes, with less extensive erosion in nearby states, say coastal change experts at the U.S. Geological Survey

Maryland agencies partner to restore stream

The Maryland Environmental Trust, a unit of the Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR), and the Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) are partnering on a pilot project to restore a stream in Cecil County.

Increases in wildfire-caused erosion could impact water in the West

A growing number of wildfire-burned areas throughout the western United States are expected to increase soil erosion rates within watersheds, causing more sediment to be present in downstream rivers and reservoirs, according to a study by the U.S. Geological Survey.
