As New Hampshire looks ahead for opportunities to make our special Seacoast more resilient to flooding and erosion from sea-level rise and storm surges, we are launching A NEW STORY SERIES that takes a closer look at past and ongoing approaches to shoreline management in the area.
The shoreline stories will try to answer a few big questions:
What does shoreline management look like on the ground in New Hampshire?
What types of information are considered when making decisions about how to protect the shore?
What are the tradeoffs of these decisions?
We will post one story each month that showcases an example of shoreline management in New Hampshire. We encourage readers to post thoughts, pose questions, and share your own shoreline stories in the blog comment section. Look for the first story, entitled: Resiliency Taking Root at Hampton Beach State Park on the NHCAW blog tomorrow (nhcaw.org).
The NH Shoreline Management Stories are sponsored by the NHDES Coastal Program, the Great Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve and the NH Coastal Adaptation Workgroup.
