The Shoreline Studies Program (SSP) within the Department of Physical Sciences at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science conducts basic and applied research primarily within the shore zone of the Chesapeake Bay estuarine system and Virginia's ocean coast. Research efforts involve wave-climate analysis, shoreline morphology, shore-zone stratigraphy and recommending shoreline management strategies.
