Sea Level Rise: Our Changing Coastline and Community
December 28, 2016 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
The impacts of climate change are becoming increasingly visible in our state and across the nation. Intense storms, unusual temperatures, and ocean warming are just some of the climate-related stories covered in local news.
Sea level rise, however, is less visible, as are the compounding effects of storm surge and extreme precipitation events. Ensuring the region’s resiliency to sea level rise clearly requires a scientifically informed and engaged public, now and in the future.
Join the Gulf of Maine Research Institute for an interactive event at the Portland Public Library on December 28th to explore the impacts of sea level rise and weather events to community resources and examine potential resiliency measures.
