Evaluating Nature-Based Solutions to Storm Wave Impacts in the Virginia Coast Reserve

Amy Ferguson
Sea level rise, increased storminess, and human population growth amplify coastal erosion problems, pressuring landowners to implement shoreline protection measures. Growing concern over the negative impacts of traditional shoreline protection methods has increased interest in nature-based solutions, called “living shorelines.” The goal of this study was to develop a better understanding of the characteristics that contribute to the vulnerability of salt marshes fringing Virginia’s coastal bays and to recommend appropriate shoreline stabilization techniques.
