Florida Sea Grant researcher rethinks how cities can adapt to rising seas.
The workshop “Sea-Level Rise and Flooding: Planning & Law for Local Governments” will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. in West Palm Beach on September 21, 2017.
Jason Evans, a Florida Sea Grant researcher, is finding ways for local governments in several cities, including Satellite Beach, to best adapt to sea-level rise. Part of Evans’ research is mapping how vulnerable public facilities such as stormwater drainage systems, fire stations and wastewater treatment plants are to rising seas.
More than 60 scientists, including Florida Sea Grant director Karl Havens, have contributed to the largest study yet of changing lake temperatures around the world.
A new Florida law focused on flooding also requires that redevelopment planning in coastal management elements includes the impacts of sea-level rise.
The event will take place June 4, 2015 from 6 to 8 p.m. at First Magnitude Brewing Company, located at 1220 SE Veitch St. in Gainesville, Fla.
NASA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and a Japanese agency confirmed that 2014 is the new warmest year on record. An article here describes the findings and that 2014 surpassed 2010 as the warmest year on record. This new record is even more impressive because it occurred in the absence of “El Niño,” a…
Presentations will include an overview of climate change science, approaches to sourcing plant propagules and impacts of climate change on sea oats, salt marshes and mangroves.
Download the final report How will changes in future climate, including rising sea level, increased temperature and evaporation, and perhaps less rainfall and longer droughts, affect the success of the ongoing multi-billion dollar Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Program? The effects could be dire, and climate change needs to be factored into restoration planning, according to Everglades…
