Abstract

Key Messages: * Soil salinization in the coastal Southeastern United States is becoming more prevalent as storm surges increase in frequency,and sea levels rise. * Salinization reduces the productivity of working lands and can prevent crops from growing. * Resources are lacking for landowners to understand coastal salinization and how to manage for resilience. * Action must be taken if the land is to remain profitable as conditions change. This manual describes the impacts and includes adaptation measures that can be taken to maintain productivity in working lands.
