CELEBRATING 40 YEARS OF COASTAL MANAGEMENT IN RHODE ISLAND
In The Spotlight
Losing Ground: Coastal Erosion in Rhode Island – Did you know that 50 percent of Rhode Island's shoreline sediments are susceptible to erosion? Or that with the increasing rainfall that comes with climate change, Block Island's bluffs will face more rapid erosion? This presentation by Janet Freedman, coastal geologist with the R.I. Coastal Resources Management Council, describes some of the erosion threats Rhode Island's coastal areas are facing, as well as efforts the state is undertaking to help municipalities and property owners address these problems. View presentation (pdf). For more on climate change impacts to Rhode Island, see Climate Change and Rhode Island's Coasts (PDF).
