U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), in collaboration with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration (NOAA), collaborated on this report that discusses the
impacts of sea-level rise on the physical characteristics of the coast,
on coastal communities, and the habitats that depend on them. The
report, Coastal Sensitivity to Sea-level Rise: A Focus on the
Mid-Atlantic Region examines multiple opportunities for governments and
coastal communities to plan for and adapt to rising sea levels.
