CapeCodOnline: The National Park Service has chosen the Cape Cod National Seashore as 1 of 4 parks in the Northeast to catalog and map submerged marine habitat in an effort to better protect the Atlantic coast from the effects of climate change.

The funding comes on the 1-year anniversary of Hurricane Sandy, and is part of a $162 million investment in 45 restoration and research projects along the Atlantic Ocean. The idea is to protect communities from future storms by restoring marshes, wetlands and beaches and by rebuilding shorelines and researching and modeling storm surges.
