However, a lack of monitoring information about the protection provided by natural infrastructure, like berms and dunes, has limited managers’ ability to use them as tools.

A new paper, “Engineering with Nature to Face Down Hurricane Hazards,” published in Eos by N-EWN members Safra Altman and Marshall Shepherd outlines just why monitoring is so important.
