We are assessing the use of various shoreline stabilization approaches. We are focusing on: 1) the impact different methods of shoreline stabilization have on ecosystem function, and 2) the effectiveness ... Read More
Living shorelines are an increasingly popular shoreline stabilization strategy because they protect against shoreline erosion while also providing habitat and enhancing water quality. The widespread adoption of living shorelines is ... Read More
We determined rates of shoreline change in the New River Estuary and Intracoastal Waterway adjacent to Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune over the past 50 years. We investigated the relationship ... Read More
In response to repeated nuisance flooding events that have impacted operations and visitor access at the Battleship NORTH CAROLINA Park, NCCOS scientists are supporting park mangers in their efforts to ... Read More
With coastal military installations increasingly impacted by surrounding urban areas, climate change and sea level rise, the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) is implementing ecosystem-based management (EBM) for long-term resiliency ... Read More
Two publications resulting from U.S. Department of Defense-funded research to support ecosystem-based management in coastal military installations have been published in the Journal of Geophysical Research-Biogeosciences. The research was a ... Read More

Salt marshes are an important part of coastal ecosystems. They provide habitat for wildlife, clean the water by filtering toxins and nutrients out, and help protect coastal infrastructure by absorbing ... Read More
SET locations in coastal North Carolina. Credit: NOAA Surface Elevation Tables, or SETs, are used to study changes in marsh surface elevation. These devices are attached to a fixed benchmark ... Read More
Scientists from NCCOS' Beaufort Laboratory recently teamed up with The Nature Conservancy to create a new Living Shorelines application (app) by bringing in their research on the relationship between salt ... Read More
NCCOS and The Nature Conservancy partnered to create a decision-support tool for North Carolina's coastal communities that identifies where shoreline conditions are suitable to ensure successful living shoreline projects. Living shorelines use native ... Read More
The National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science (NCCOS) promotes the educational and professional advancement of students and early-career scientists/scholars (e.g., postdoctoral) in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) through mentoring ... Read More
Wilson Bay in Jacksonville, NC was transformed from a polluted waterway to a healthy wetland ecosystem by a community-wide partnership. To assess the success and future health of the restored ... Read More
This dataset is an inventory of 6-minute water level, water salinity, and water temperature data from two secondary water level stations at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune (MCBCL), Jacksonville, NC, collected between 2008 and 2018. The Mile Hammock Bay (MHB) ... Read More
The North Carolina Sentinel Site Cooperative (NCSSC) was established in 2012 as part of a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) effort to provide coastal communities and resource managers with information on the potential impacts of sea level rise on coastal habitats. The ... Read More
Purports to develop a multiscale model to measure "the refuge effect" of a marine reserve by analyzing conditions in a relatively pristine marine reserve to compare with less pristine nearby marine park environments. Uses the Tortugas Ecological Reserve within Dry ... Read More
