Task 4: Heritage Management Case Studies

We will consult with the professional archaeological community to compile a ‘long’ list of sites that have experienced some degree of disturbance or loss from coastal erosion and retreat in Atlantic Canada.  Given the need to develop a wide range of case studies to illustrate various management options and decisions, we will select case study sites based on local relative sea-level history, type and severity of coastal disturbance, coastal landscape setting, local data sources and quality including resolution, nature of coastal defense or disturbance mitigation, and finally cost and value-added.
