Summary

In the face of sea level rise and as climate change conditions increase the frequency and intensity of tropical storms along the north-Atlantic Coast, coastal areas will become increasingly vulnerable to storm damage, and the decline of already-threatened species could be exacerbated. Predictions about response of coastal birds to effects of hurricanes will be essential for anticipating and countering environmental impacts. This project will assess coastal bird populations, behavior, and nesting in Hurricane Sandy-impacted North Carolina barrier islands. The project comprises three components: 1) ground-based and airborne lidar analyses to examine site specific selection criteria of coastal birds; 2) NWI classification habitat mapping [...]

Purpose

To document the effects of sea level rise and climate change on the landscape of Cape Lookout (Outer Banks, North Carolina). This project will study changes in landscape and habitat is it pertains to the recovery of coastal birds and threatened species in the wake of storms and environmental impacts.
