Abstract:
This article describes how two projects have expanded beyond their early support from the North Carolina Sea Grant. On the southern coast of North Carolina, a new species of butterfly, the crystal skipper, makes its permanent home within a 30-mile stretch of sand dune. People-First Tourism, Inc., (P1t) creates an online marketplace where the public has direct pathways to vetted microentrepreneurs.

Abstract:
In a two-year study along North Carolina’s coast, the effects of sea-level rise and saltwater exposure on freshwater amphibians were investigated. Research findings show that the green tree frog has shown the ability to thrive in habitats of higher salinity than other frog species. These results are derived from the discovery of green tree frogs living and thriving in saltwater marshes of relatively high salinity.

Abstract:
In the rural-eastern side of North Carolina, the amount of saltwater intrusion and retreating forests has led to a phenomenon called Ghost Forests. Using LIDAR data and satellite imagery, researchers are working to map the change in the forests for future use in climate change adaption strategies.

Abstract:
Oyster reef revitalization efforts are being addressed by North Carolina’s Sea Grant and Space Grant. While the goal is to rebuild healthy oyster reefs, a sustainable population can also help the ecosystem by filtering water to create better water quality, and healthier fish populations and aquatic plant life. Using geospatial analysis, researchers hope to help guide decision-making processes to ensure that the reefs are restored correctly and with the maximum impact.
