Chilika Lake Sedimentation During monsoon season excess sediment is deposited in Chilika Lake, mostly from Mahanadi River tributaries, nearby settlements, and agricultural lands. As the Lake becomes more shallow and its sea outlets fill in with sediment, increased flooding occurs.      diagram,sediment,flooding,excess,monsoon,chilika,lake,sedimentation,shallow

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.

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.

Homeowner is allowed to fill in wetlands On a property that was grandfathered to build on a tiny waterfront lot, the owner was allowed by the local zoning department to fill in a low wetland where his well (white pipe) and dock electric service (right center of photo) were located. As this photo documents, this low area was frequently flooded. sea level rise,flooding,critical area,development,Talbot County,Maryland

Fiber logs Natural fiber logs for sale at a local hardware store in Cambridge MD. These logs are designed to be used in constructing a natural "living shoreline", as opposed to a hardened shoreline that employs a concrete bulkhead or stone rip rap. The former creates habitat for native plants and wildlife where the latter removes habitat. jute,log,shoreline,erosion,protection,buffer,climate change,sea level rise,storm,flooding,mitigation

Shoreline erosion control Conceptual diagram illustrating a hardened shoreline vs a natural shoreline. The hardened shoreline has concrete rip-rap or a sea wall. It can be very costly and can also interrupt natural shoreline processes and sand movement that can lead to increased erosion downdrift from the structure. A natural shoreline incorporates native vegetation with a buffer strip of sand and/or fiber logs. It filters runoff and traps sediment, actually widening the beach, and providing valuable shoreline habitat for wildlife. diagram,climate change,sea level rise,flooding,protection,erosion,shoreline,buffer,rip rap,bulkhead
