Saleem Khan, A., Ramachandran, A., Usha, N., Punitha, S., & Selvam, V. (2012). Predicted impact of the sea-level rise at Vellar-Coleroon estuarine region of Tamil Nadu coast in India: Mainstreaming adaptation as a coastal zone management option. Ocean & Coastal Management. South Asia: India In the low-lying area of Vellar-Coleroon estuarine, Tamil Nadu coast, India, agricultural lands are threatened not only due to inundation but also due to erosion and salt water intrusion. Salinity intrusion due to SLR will decrease agricultural production by limiting fresh water supplies and inducing soil degradation. Salt water intrusion coupled with rising temperatures will threaten many aquaculture farming species such as finfish and shellfish (prawns and crabs). -
