Climate Change & Coastal Stressors

Climate change can influence coastal areas in a variety of ways. Coasts are sensitive to ocean level ascent, changes in the frequency and intensity of storms, increments in precipitation, and hotter sea temperatures. Furthermore, rising atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide (CO2) are bringing about the oceans to retain a greater amount of the gas and turn out to be more acidic. This rising acidity can significantly affect seaside and marine biological communities. Shoreline disintegration, coastal flooding, and water contamination, is as of now a worry in numerous ranges. Tending to the extra stretch of climate change may require new ways to deal with overseeing land, water, waste, and biological communities. Developing populaces and advancement along the coasts increase the vulnerability of beach front biological systems to ocean level ascent. Advancement can obstruct the inland relocation of wetlands accordingly of ocean level ascent and change the measure of silt conveyed to coastal regions and quickens disintegration.

  • Conversion of land to commercial or residential uses
  • Shoreline hardening
  • Associated loss of intertidal habitat
  • Problems associated with development
  • Stormwater runoff
  • Low dissolved Oxygen and harmful algal blooms
  • Degradation of ecosystems from excess nutrients, sediments and contaminants.
  • Vegetation removal
