Upcoming Webinar: “Why Was Hurricane Sandy So Damaging? Sea-Level Rise and Geomorphic Dominance on Storm Impacts"


02/22/2014

On Wednesday, February 26, at 3:30pm ET, Jonathan Woodruff of UMass Amherst will discuss how changes in storm climatology, relative sea level rise, and the form and behavior of shorelines have governed past changes in coastal flooding by storms in the northeast. A main point of the talk will be to highlight that rising sea level and associated shoreline change will likely become the two dominant drivers of increased periods of extreme coastal inundation, irrespective of changes in future storm climatology. To highlight this point he will present new observations of resulting sedimentation and shoreline impacts by Hurricane Sandy compared to past storm events.
