Marine ecology and coastal climate adaptation

The Coastal and Estuarine Adaptation Lab tests the application of ecological engineering techniques for coastal resilience and restoration. We develop novel methods for shoreline protection using a diversity of restored or created coastal habitats (e.g., mangroves, saltmarsh, seagrass, kelp and shellfish reefs).
