The latest episode of the Engineering With Nature podcast, hosted by Sarah Thorne, features Deputy Lead of the Engineering With Nature Program Amanda Tritinger, Research Hydraulic Engineer Duncan Bryant, and Research Oceanographer Nick Cohn: a team united by their love of sand dunes.
All three are affiliated with the Coastal and Hydraulics Laboratory at the USACE Engineer Research and Development Center. They’re passionate about “dune stewardship,” protecting and restoring the dunes that create resilience for coastal communities. As Amanda describes it, “People tend to overlook dunes and the role they play, especially during hurricane season. Dunes can make the difference, and they play such a big role in the defense of our coastlines during hurricane seasons.”
