Case Study
Summary: 

Cape Lookout National Seashore is regularly impacted by hurricanes and other storms. To improve park management, the park needed to develop a post-storm recovery plan to ensure wise fiscal decisions and management of public expectations for what facilities and services can be restored following these major events. 

Reducing Vulnerability of Coastal Visitor Facilities, Cape Cod National Seashore, Massachusetts

Case Study
Summary: 

Cape Cod National Seashore, Massachusetts, needs to replace visitor facilities along a popular beach vulnerable to coastal erosion and storm impacts. Redesigning this area required collaboration with visitors, town representatives, coastal engineers, and scientists to incorporate visitor use and needs with the realities of coastal change. 

Summary: 

Climate change impacts, including coastal erosion, reduction in sea ice, and thawing of permafrost, are impacting Bering Land Bridge National Preserve (BELA) and Cape Krusenstern National Monument (CAKR) along the northwestern Alaska coast.

Adaptation Phase: 
Assessment
Summary: 

Climate change has increased the vulnerability of cultural resources in coastal locations at Bering Land Bridge National Preserve and Cape Krusenstern National Monument along the northwestern Alaska coast. The Alaska Regional Office is developing and testing a GIS model that is intended to predict locations and vulnerability of these cultural resources.

Summary: 

The South Bay Salt Pond (SBSP) Restoration Project is the largest tidal restoration project on the West Coast, and will transform 15,100 acres to a mosaic of tidal wetlands and managed pond habitats. In addition, the restored tidal wetland system will provide a critical natural buffer against the effects of climate change such as sea level rise, coastal flooding, and erosion.

Adapting to Sea Level Rise and Coastal Erosion in Hawaii

Case Study
Sector Addressed:

Transportation / Infrastructure
Summary: 

Coastal erosion has been, and continues to be, a major issue in Hawaii. It is estimated that Oahu has lost 25% of its beaches from seawall construction resulting in beach erosion, while 72% of the beaches in Kauai are chronically eroding. In addition, the long-term effects of sea level rise are expected to accelerate and expand beach erosion and result in a landward shift of the beach system.

Water Resources
Summary: 

In the 1980s, the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority began to plan for a new wastewater treatment plant on Deer Island in Boston Harbor. The treatment plant’s effluent is discharged through a gravity fed pipe into Boston Harbor. Planners were concerned that projected sea level rise would disrupt the gravity fed pipe, requiring the installation of pumps.

Summary: 

The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) petitioned to list 83 species of coral under the Endangered Species Act. The petition listed greenhouse gas emissions as the primary cause of increased water temperatures, ocean acidification, increased frequency and intensity of coastal storms, and sea level rise, all of which combine to threaten corals.
