Hurricanes: The Future of Coastal Cities
Brought to you by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution
Join the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution for the Hurricanes: The Future of Coastal Cities webinar in the Ocean Encounters Virtual Series.
The webinar will discuss how coastal cities lie at the intersection of many issues—ocean and climate, ecosystems and human infrastructure, and a rapidly growing population on a constantly changing landscape between land and sea. Our safety, economic security, and cultural growth depend on us learning how to live more wisely in this complex landscape. Sea-level rise and other fundamental changes are already reshaping coastal cities around the globe.
Speakers: Dr. Ayana Elizabeth Johnson, marine biologist, founder of Ocean Collectiv and Urban Ocean Lab, and Dr. Jeff Donnelly, WHOI senior scientist and marine geologist
Host: Dr. Véronique LaCapra, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution
