Products of the Assessment
The primary product of this assessment will be a USGS Circular on freshwater-saltwater interactions along the Atlantic coast. The focus of the Circular will be on the current understanding of the mechanisms and extent of saltwater intrusion into freshwater aquifers along the Atlantic coast and on ground-water flow and discharge processes in coastal environments of the eastern seaboard. An additional product will be a plan of study for a multi-year data-collection and data-analysis investigation that would provide water-resource managers, scientists, and the public with improved information and methods for analysis and management of ground-water resources in freshwater-saltwater environments along the Atlantic coast.
