Who's Watching the Rising Tide?

The Baltimore Sun Business section today features Zoe Johnson, a coastal planner with the Maryland Department of Natural Resources. Johnson studies shoreline erosion and other effects of rising sea levels and climate change. Thirteen Chesapeake Bay islands have disappeared over the years, and the water level in the bay is rising at a rate of about a foot per century, twice the national average.
