NROC has established two working groups to study issues and solutions to make our coastlines more resilient: the Living Shorelines Group and the Marsh Migration Group. The goal of NROC’s Living Shorelines Group is to facilitate regional knowledge-sharing around living shorelines and coastal green or natural infrastructure. The Marsh Migration Group is an initiative first sponsored by NROC in 2014-15 to advance the effective use of models of marsh migration in the context of management and policy.
Through the Resilient Shorelines grant program, NROC funded several projects to deliver decision-support tools, maps, data and information to support coastal resiliency in the Northeast.
A new click-through educational product introduces shoreline property owners to a cost-effective, eco-friendly option for protecting shorelines from waves, storms, and other causes of erosion: living shorelines.
The report Make Way for Marshes: Guidance on Using Models of Tidal Marsh Migration to Support Community Resilience to Sea Level Rise covers the entire modeling life-cycle.
