Gulf Resilience: South Atlantic Coastal Study

March 4, 2021 12:00 pm — 1:15 pm


The South Atlantic Coastal Study (SACS), led by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, identifies risks and vulnerabilities of coastal areas to increased storm damage and sea level rise. Seeking to support resilient communities and habitats, this collaborative effort leverages stakeholders' actions to plan and implement cohesive coastal storm risk management strategies along the South Atlantic and Gulf Coast shorelines. For more information about the study, please visit:

This webinar will focus on the results of the SACS as it applies specifically to the Mississippi coast (Hancock, Harrison, and Jackson counties), with particular attention on the focus areas identified in the study, the Biloxi-Gulfport area and the Greater Pascagoula area. Please join us to learn more about the results of the study to date, including identified risks in the three coastal counties, identified priority environmental areas, and how communities and city officials can engage with the Corps of Engineers to provide their input. During the webinar, you will also be able to participate in the discussion with the study’s developers from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
