ISGP Podcast: Coastal Crisis? Shore Thing
It’s a straightforward equation: Rising temperatures plus rising seas equals greater risk of coastal damage, both to the environment and to properties. Scientists need to do a better job of communicating this risk, and coastal residents and governments need to do a better job of planning for it, said the debaters of the paper New Jersey Shore’s Future: Coping with Climate Change and Storm Risk, by Dr. Thomas Knutson, Research Meteorologist, Climate Dynamics and Prediction Group, Geophysical Fluids Dynamics Lab, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Princeton, New Jersey, U.S.
Dr. Knutson’s paper was part of the ISGP conference The Shore’s Future: Living with Storms & Sea Level Rise, convened Nov. 20-21, 2015, in Toms River, New Jersey.
