Presented by: Jason Winner, Conservation GIS Manager, Scenic Hudson, Inc. and
Nava Tabak, Conservation Scientist, Scenic Hudson, Inc.
In order to help Hudson River shoreline communities visualize potential sea level rise scenarios and resources that may be at risk, Scenic Hudson, in cooperation with the Hudson River Estuary Program, created the Sea Level Rise Mapper. Jason Winner and Nava Tabak will present tools and resources that Hudson River communities can use to plan for predicted sea level rise scenarios over the next century.
This seminar will:
- provide an overview of the science behind sea level rise;
- show how the inundation and flood zone expansion scenarios are created;
- show how the Sea Level Rise Mapper can be used to visualize future scenarios for Hudson River shoreline communities;
- discuss different adaptation strategies that communities can employ to protect key resources;
- discuss the resources available to evaluate appropriate solutions based on the costs and benefits; and
- discuss examples of how Hudson River shoreline communities have used the Sea Level Rise Mapper and other tools to inform the development of long term adaptation plans.
A question and answer and discussion period will follow.
Parking is available in the garage on 1st Street.
