Coastal Climate Program

Climate change is already impacting Marylanders, but there are actions you can take to adapt to current and future climate impacts and to protect yourself, your family, and your community.

The Maryland Sea Grant Extension Coastal Climate Program provides science-based information to promote climate adaptation in coastal communities throughout the state. We assist residents and decision-makers with understanding and preparing for the effects of climate change, with a focus on flooding due to sea level rise, precipitation, and storm events.
