Formation of a Mid-Atlantic Ghost Forest
Ghost forests are formed when sea level rise and saltwater intrusion kill trees at the coastal interface. While the formation of ghost forests reduces coastal forest habitat, it also offers an opportunity for expansion of intertidal ecosystems such as tidal marshes, which are rapidly losing habitat in other places. The Mid-Atlantic is a hot spot of sea level rise and provides a window through which to view the future of coastal change. Monitoring coastal forests with satellite data and on-the-ground observations in the Mid-Atlantic, Gedan provides an ecological description of ghost forest formation. As these ecosystems are a visual reminder of sea level rise, they also provide an unparalleled opportunity for public outreach and education. Working together with scientists, artists and journalists have provided new perspectives on ghost forests.
