National parks near coastal areas of the Northeast have long since recovered from Hurricane Sandy and are in better shape for the next tropical storm. "We learned a lot after Sandy," said National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis. "It's a case study in how we look at protecting vulnerable coastal resources and infrastructure from avoidable impacts." 

Lessons from Sandy and other case studies are part of the Coastal Adaptation Strategies Handbook, a summary of what scientists and park managers know about climate adaptation in coastal areas. The handbook highlights the processes and tools parks have available for response and recovery from tropical storms and hurricanes and offers strategies to address rising sea levels.
