Coastal Ecosystems - Evaluating
Impacts to Coastal Health
You will focus on the impacts (historical and potential)
of events including; hurricanes, sea level rising, tsunami, and anthropogenic
and the anticipated outcome with compromised versus healthy ecosystems. This
becomes a course that assesses the impact to adjacent habitats using mangroves
as a starting point. We go back out to the same sites, or others, and look at
adjacent habitats and the impacts (immediate and long term) to coastal
resources. This is still a field techniques course but the emphasis is on
adjacent habitats and impacts to marine and coastal resources. We can discuss
this during round table on a local, regional , and global scale.
