Vertical Land Motion in the Chesapeake Bay Workshop

On February 28th, CBSSC and Maryland Sea Grant had a one day workshop to discuss the latest science on vertical land motion, current monitoring efforts, and anticipated impacts on our coastal ecosystems. This was an opportunity for coastal resilience scientists, managers, planners, and communicators to engage with vertical land motion’s geologic, hydrologic, and geodetic community. Together, we hope to further understand the data, promote better communication around vertical land motion, and address decision-making needs regarding sea-level rise in the Chesapeake Bay. 

The workshop proceedings summarize the findings from the group discussions and surveys.

All workshop participants were expected to follow the CBSSC Event Code of Conduct, which adopted the same Event Code of Conduct as the Coastal & Estuarine Research Federation.
