Log Description

The Chronolog station is located at Fox Point, on a portion of the Boston Harborwalk in front of the University of Massachusetts Boston. This site is impacted by the tidal cycle in Boston Harbor and receding tides expose a large area of tidal flats. Watching how the flats change over time will help researchers understand the driving forces behind those changes.   

About Stone Living Lab


 

The Stone Living Lab is an innovative and collaborative initiative for testing and scaling up nature-based approaches to climate adaptation, coastal resilience and ecological restoration in the high-energy environment of the Boston Harbor Islands National and State Park. 

The pictures collected from our Chronolog stations will help us measure and track coastal change along Boston Harbor. How will seasonal change and storm events shift in the face of climate change?

The Stone Living Lab is a partnership of the City of Boston, UMass Boston School for the Environment, Boston Harbor Now, the National Parks of Boston, the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation, and the James M. and Cathleen D. Stone Foundation that engages scientists and the community in research, education, and the promotion of equity.
