Coastal Network Addresses Shoreline Change
The South Carolina Coastal Information Network recently hosted a workshop series titled “South Carolina’s Changing Shoreline: Implications for the Future.” The workshops were held in each of the state’s coastal regions: the Lowcountry (Beaufort, Colleton, and Jasper counties), Berkeley-Charleston-Dorchester, and the Waccamaw (Georgetown and Horry counties).
These events complemented the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control–Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management Community Leaders’ Discussion Forums held in 2009. The workshops featured scientists and resource managers who presented information on the status of climate, sea level, and shoreline change in South Carolina.
Attendees included local elected and appointed government officials, municipal staff, resource managers, public health managers, and other community leaders.
