ISGP Podcast: The Fast & the Furious: Sea Level Drift
While scientists agree sea levels are rising, the magnitude of sea level rise over time is less well understood, making it difficult to design and implement effective adaptation policies for coastal properties. Debaters discussed this challenge and potential fixes in their consideration of the paper The Coming Reality of Sea Level Rise Along the New Jersey Coast: Too Fast Too Soon, by Dr. Harold Wanless, Professor and Chair of the Department of Geological Sciences, University of Miami, Florida, U.S.
Dr. Wanless’ paper was considered at the ISGP Climate Change Program conference The Shore’s Future: Living with Storms and Sea Level Rise, convened October 20-21, 2015, in Toms River, New Jersey, U.S.
