Sea-level rise & marshes Conceptual diagram illustrating how sea-level rise creates mainland-fringing marshland, as well as how it affects existing marshes.

This consists of developing an 'equilibrium profile' for the shoreface, which is shaped by the gradual release of wave energy approaching the shore.

Human activity and natural threats include overfishing, destructive and illegal fishing practices, unsustainable coastal development, unsustainable land use practices, and natural disasters. Climate change threats include increased sea surface temperature, sea level rise, increased storm frequency and intensity, increased rainfall, and ocean acidification. long-line,dynamite,logging,sediment,nutrients,runoff,earthquake,tsunami,flooding,bleaching,pH Climate change impacts on ecosystem and management The many benefits of a healthy ocean need to be managed with sustainable land use practices that reduce the flow of sediments, nutrients, and pathogens into coastal waters; catch limits and gear restrictions for fisheries are implemented; and non-extraction zones are established to maximize the well-being of selected marine habitats and to allow them to provide valuable ecosystem services.  diagram,climate,change,human,
