Elevation and Living Shoreline Conceptual diagram illustrating what a waterfront owner can do to protect their property from climate change. Existing structures can be elevated in low-lying areas, and eco-friendly living shorelines can be implemented, to lessen climate change effects like flooding.

Saltwater Intrusion on Barrier Islands Conceptual diagram illustrating saltwater intrusion on barrier islands due to climate change. As sea-level rises, ocean saltwater travels underground until it reaches the fresh groundwater in the mixing zone.

Sea-level Rise and Storm Surges on Barrier Islands Conceptual diagram illustrating the effects of sea-level rise and storm surges on barrier islands. When sea-level rise combines with strong storms, barrier islands experience high storm surges, which increases the effects of flooding and erosion.

Atmosphere Warming Changes Conceptual diagram illustrating changes due to the warming of the atmosphere. The average temperature on Earth has been increasing for many years, caused by increased greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Rising temperatures lead to a number of changes around the world.

Monitoring Activities to Track Changing Habitats on Barrier Island Conceptual diagram illustrating different monitoring activities implemented on Assateague Island to track changing habitats. Monitoring activities - which are habitat specific - include water quality, seagrass area, salt marsh nekton survey, surface elevation table, plover nests and fledgling success, upland elevation change, shoreline rate of change, and beach topography.

Experiment Demonstrating Melting Ice Conceptual diagram illustrating the effects of climate change on polar ice. There are two kinds of polar ice - ice that floats on the sea (sea ice) or ice that sits on land (land ice). The experiment demonstrates that sea ice does not impact sea-level rise when it melts, but land ice does add to sea-level rise when it melts into the ocean.

Sand dunes encroach upon forest and shrub zone A natural geomorphological function of this mid-Atlantic barrier island is westward migration. On the northern end of Assateague Island, these ocean sand dunes are moving and encroaching on the edge of woodlands as part of the rollover process. geomorphology,overwash,Maryland
