Event description

Description

Reception: Presentations and Q&A Panel:
The Wet Lab RSMAS Auditorium
6:00 pm – 7:00 pm 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm.

Rising sea levels and climatic extremes are increasingly threatening the coastline of SE Florida and these effects, experienced as wave impacts and storm surge, can cause property and infrastructure damage, flooding, and shoreline erosion. Coastal ecosystems, such as coral reefs, seagrass beds, mangrove forests, and sand dunes, have the potential to help reduce these impacts, but these benefits have not been well quantified and these ecosystems may be undervalued as a result.

The University of Miami, in collaboration with The Nature Conservancy, is hosting an exciting public workshop on “Coastal Resilience and Climate Adaptation: Impacts and Solutions” at the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, Miami, FL, on May 24th from 7-9 pm. The panel will include short presentations by leading experts in the fields of Living Shoreline Ecology, Sustainable Engineering, Coastal Management and Policy, and Shoreline Hydrodynamics, followed by an interactive Q&A session. Prior to the workshop (6-7 pm), join us for a free wine and cheese Reception at the RSMAS Wet Lab bar and restaurant!

This event is supported by the University of Miami Laboratory for Integrative Knowledge (U-LINK, a university-wide platform for incubating ideas, fostering interdisciplinary collaborations, and facilitating new approaches to difficult problems), the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, The University of Miami’s Department of Civil, Architectural, and Environmental Engineering, Florida Sea Grant, and The Nature Conservancy.

This event is open to the public on a first-come-first-served basis. If you plan to attend, please RSVP so that we can hold your place.
