Title: Enhancing Resilience on Maryland's Deal Island - NERRS/NSC(NERRS Science Collaborative)
Status: Completed

Maryland’s coastal marshlands are under siege from rising sea levels and historic land use practices, such as intensive wetland ditching. When the marshlands go they take vital services with them, such as protection from storm surge and flooding. While there is an urgent need to address this problem, decision-makers lack the collaborative partnerships and science-based information needed to develop and apply effective management solutions.


A team from the Chesapeake Bay Maryland Reserve and the University of Maryland helped address this need by developing a strong regional stakeholder network focused on coastal resilience and by integrating economic, anthropological, and ecological research to help these stakeholders understand how different management practices will impact marsh and community resilience on the state’s Deal Island Peninsula.
