Summary of Social Science Investigations:

Goal: Evaluate the degree to which current studies are providing comprehensive coverage of essential parts of the human elements in the system, priority needs for additional information (and the appropriate methods), and emergent understandings related to the primary objective of understanding/forecasting shoreline management decision making under future scenarios.

Summary of Natural Science Investigations:

Goal: Evaluate capacity to answer questions regarding relative performance of ecological functions between natural marshes and living shorelines, consequences of sea level rise on cumulative shorescape functions; and needs for additional information.
