Glaciers & Sea Level Community of Practice Meeting

Event Dates
Online: 9:00-10:00 am AKDT, 1:00-2:00 pm EDT

Multiple federal agencies engage scientists from numerous disciplines to generate projections of sea-level rise for U.S. coastlines, but how do coastal communities use this information to prepare for the future? This meeting will discuss examples of planning for coastal resilience at both a municipal and individual level, with introductions to these topics from two speakers working directly on these issues (Alexander Robel and Nadia Seeteram).

  • Living with water: Evolving adaptation preferences under increasing sea-level rise in Miami-Dade County, FL, USA (Nadia Seeteram, Post-Doctoral Research Scientist, Columbia University) (15 min)
