Rising seas have played a huge role in the creation and shaping of the Massachusetts shoreline over many millennia. This session will cover historic shoreline changes due to glacial activity, and the time scales involved, as well as describing how beaches are formed and how they respond to the forces of sea level rise, tides and storm events. After a brief discussion of what the shoreline might look like in years to come and steps we can take now to preserve beaches, Greg Berman will discuss recent trends in erosion management and how local and state efforts are being managed in order to make the region more resilient.
