Overview

Coastal erosion plays a significant role in the retreat of New York City’s coastlines. It also amplifies the city’s vulnerability to coastal storms leaving the city more at risk for natural resource depletion, infrastructure damage, physical harm, and economic hardship.  Unfortunately, future coastal erosion rates are difficult to predict, underscoring the need to collect more robust baseline data from monitoring stations along the coast to determine annual shoreline changes.
