How this mitigates the impacts of climate change

Coastal buffer against rising sea levels; dune and wetland restorations reduce the impact of coastal erosion and inundation, trapping predators etc.

This page will feature explanatory notes and diagrams and link to the internal pages on rising sea levels and Canterbury case studies: sea levels.

As new projects are added, more explanatory pages may be needed that go into more depth. There’s quite a bit of this in the nuts and bolts section, including biodiversity and ecosystem services. Some unfamiliar terms might be best added under ‘Explainer‘ near the end of each page.

Resources: where can I find out more?

Links to website, contact names and information etc.

Explainers

Term briefly explained here.

For example, this is from the  Antarctic page to explain the term ‘albedo’

Fig. 7 : The Albedo Effect. Clean ice reflects about 90% of the sunlight that strikes it. Dark ocean water only reflects about 6%. This aerial photo shows a small portion of A-68, the iceberg that broke of Larsen C Ice Shelf in 2017 (Photo: NASA/ Nathan Kurtz)
