For our Coastal Zone Management project, Clougher and I are going to map the inter tidal zone next to Massachusetts Maritime Academy. Our plan is to map the beach and measure salt marsh erosion at 19 different locations. Each of these locations will be marked by gps and a steak so that we can identify them easily. The steak was then marked with a number to be easily identified over the next few years. With the steaks now in the ground we can also see if the salt marsh itself has eroded. Beach erosion has become a huge issue facing many developed coastlines. The social problem is that people want to live right on the water to either enjoy the view or the activities of the ocean. It only becomes a problem when people decide to build man made structures near intertidal zones. This leads to a perfectly natural phenomenon to being a giantly financial one.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
