|Research and studies on the impact of sea-level rise and climate change on the southeastern coast of New Brunswick
Current research and studies on the impact of sea-level rise and climate change on the southeastern coast of New Brunswick in collaboration with McGill University Montreal and Dept. of geological surveys, N.B. (>>see maps) suggests that storms that impacted the coast prior to 1971 were more severe than the ones after 1971. Thus, there was more erosion in the Grant Creek area between 1944 and 1971 than after that period.
Currently the maps are being updated by the University of Moncton using 2012 orthophotos in assessing the sea-level rise and coastal squeeze effect on the salt marshes of Grant Creek area.
