Coastal Vulnerability Assessment of Assateague Island National Seashore (ASIS) To Sea-Level Rise
Entry ID: USGS_OFR_2004_1020_1.0


Summary
Abstract: A coastal vulnerability index (CVI) was used to map relative vulnerability of
the coast to future sea-level rise within Assateague Island National Seashore
(ASIS) in Maryland and Virginia. The CVI ranks the following in terms of their
physical contribution to sea-level rise-related coastal change: geomorphology,
regional coastal slope, rate of relative sea-level rise, shoreline change
rates, mean ... View entire text
