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.
