Major meteorological and hydrological hazards such as maritime storms, sea-fog, coastal floods, dune blowouts, nearshore ice drift and thermo-abrasion are periodic phenomena that adversely impact Middle Atlantic coastlines. Secular changes in coastal morphology related to eustatic factors require long term management strategies that focus on public responsibility for definitive hazard policy. Human response to vulnerability and risk in the example of New York's Long Island is linked to perception and evaluation of coastal hazards.
