Oil Spill Containment Positioned by multiple vessels, an attempt to contain an oil spill is made using temporary floating booms. Booms are used to reduce the possibility of polluting shorelines and other resources, and to help make recovery easier. Booms help to concentrate oil in thicker surface layers so that skimmers, vacuums, or other collection methods can be used more effectively. symbol,vector,illustration,fossil fuel,extraction,exploration,offshore,drilling,BP,Deepwater Horizon,spill,clean up,response,safety,environmental degradation

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.

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.

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

Adaptation to Climate Change Conceptual diagram illustrating preparations for the effects of climate change: Elevating and moving houses and utilities away from flood plain boundaries make them less vulnerable to storms and may lower flood insurance rates. Rather than building a concrete levy to protect property, consider a natural shoreline that offers the same benefit. diagram,climate change,global warming,sea level rise,flooding,adaptation,mitigation,protection,erosion
