Minimize Soil Movement, Resist Water Impact When slopes are remediated, several criteria are considered in the design to ensure the surface will remain stable in...
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.
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
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.
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.
The full range of coastal concerns will be up for discussion at the upcoming National Coastal Conference, with more than 180 speakers addressing an array of issues during the three-day event.
The full range of coastal concerns will be up for discussion at the upcoming National Coastal Conference, presented by the American Shore & Beach Preservation Association (ASBPA).
About two-thirds of beaches from North Carolina to Maryland have a high probability of eroding as Hurricane Maria moves up the coast, according to the latest U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) coastal change forecast. Approximately 15 percent of that same shoreline has a high probability of experiencing overwash, where surge and waves overtop dunes.
Large and powerful Hurricane Irma is likely to cause significant erosion along U.S. East Coast beaches from Florida through South Carolina, according to a new projection from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).
