Hurricanes, Sea-Level Rise, and Coastal Flooding in the Mid-Atlantic (Ocean Currents Lecture Series)

This is a past event

Earth, ocean, and environmental sciences enthusiasts won’t want to miss the Ocean Currents Lecture Series, continuing this summer from May to September. The lecture series is free and open to the public.

John Callahan: "Hurricanes, Sea-Level Rise, and Coastal Flooding in the Mid-Atlantic." Coastal flooding is the most significant natural hazard facing Delaware today. It can degrade ecosystems, erode beaches, damage infrastructure, and put human safety at risk. The U.S. Mid-Atlantic region is routinely impacted by coastal storms and is well-known for its high rates of sea-level rise. In this talk, we will look at past observations and future projections of sea levels and tropical storms for the Delaware and Chesapeake Bays.
