Blog Post Image: USGS-NOAA: Climate Change Impacts to U.S. Coasts Threaten Public Health, Safety and Economy

View looking west along the New Jersey shore. Storm waves and surge cut across the barrier island at Mantoloking, NJ, eroding a wide beach, destroying houses and roads, and depositing sand onto the island and into the back-bay. Construction crews with heavy machinery are seen clearing sand from roads and pushing sand seaward to build a wider beach and protective berm just days after the storm. The yellow arrow in each image points to the same feature. Image credit: U.S. Geological Survey (Click image to enlarge)
