Sea Level Rise: The Risks and Realities
Speaker: Dr. William Sweet, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)
In this lecture, NOAA oceanographer William Sweet will talk about water level data from around the U.S. and decipher important patterns that directly impact coastal communities. He will focus on how the frequency of “nuisance” tidal flooding has been changing over the last century, and framing possible “futures” under continued and accelerated sea level rise projections.
SERC's monthly evening lectures run every third Tuesday of the month, from March through October. Lectures are free and open to all: No RSVP required!
