Virginia Coast Reserve director Jill Bieri was interviewed by Sandy Hausman on WVTF/Radio IQ about the Virginia Eastern Shore Coastal Resilience tool.
The Future Habitat app, which shows how the size and distribution of tidal marshes and other coastal habitats may change in response to future projected sea-level rise scenarios on Virginia’s Eastern Shore, has been updated.
Chris Bruce, the GIS Manager for TNC Virginia, and Amy Ferguson, an M.S. Candidate at University of Virginia, recently presented award-winning posters that document the study sites, field methods, data analysis, and finally some results that are incorporated into various Coastal Resilience applications specific to Virginia’s eastern shore.
The Virginian Pilot highlights the work that TNC and partners’ have been engaging in to model both the historic trends of and future projections for the eastern shore barrier islands.
Groundbreaking apps aim to put Eastern Shore a step ahead of sea level rise.
