Climate change: ghost forest Illustration of a ghost forest, which can be caused by sea-level rise, land subsidence, or both. As land subsides along the coast, trees can drown in saturated soils, creating ghost forests. Salt-water intrusion into groundwater can also cause salt-intolerant trees to die. symbol,vector,illustration,ghost forests,dead trees,climate change,global warming,sea-level rise,sea level rise,land subsidence,sinking,soil,saltwater,salt,water

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.

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.

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
