Date:7/30/2009

Cambridge, Md. (July 30, 2009) A team of 80 researchers from more than 20 organizations has teamed up to author Shifting Sands: Environmental and Cultural Change in Maryland's Coastal Bays, a comprehensive look at the coastal lagoons and barrier islands making up Maryland's Atlantic coastline.

Published by IAN Press, Shifting Sands leads the reader through the history, setting, context and ecology of these waterways, their islands and mainland watershed.

"By integrating cutting-edge science, peer-reviewed analysis and clear graphic illustrations, Shifting Sands synthesizes decades of work to better understand Maryland's Coastal Bays ecosystem," said lead author Bill Dennison from the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science. "Through their unique approach of weaving together the region's scientific exploration and history, the authors tell give a holistic view of the Coastal Bays."

The 396-page book is divided into 15 chapters detailing introductions to the six subwatersheds (Assawoman Bay, Isle of Wight Bay, St. Martin River, Sinepuxent Bay, Newport Bay, and Chincoteague Bay), as well as management activities, history, setting, context and ecology of these fragile lagoons.
