Webinar: Increasing Coastal Resilience to Sea-level Rise through Natural Infrastructure and Beneficial Use of Dredged Materials

Dr. C. Rhett Jackson of the University of Georgia will present on the need to increase coastal resiliency in barrier island and coastal communities of the Gulf and Atlantic Coasts. He will discuss how a mix of natural infrastructure projects, traditional infrastructure retrofits, and policy refinements, including managed retreat will address sea-level rise issues. The presentation will touch upon how beneficial use of dredge materials may help reduce overall costs of sea-level rise adaptation.

What does a changing climate mean for Georgia’s infrastructure?

Georgia’s climate is changing threatening the state’s essential water, energy, and transportation infrastructure. In the years to come, investment in innovative resiliency efforts will ensure a just future for all Georgians. N-EWN member Rhett Jackson participated in this webinar. Learn more

Paths Forward for Optimal Data Collection for Future Natural Disaster Events: A 1st Step Toward Effective Analysis of Pre/Post Disaster Monitoring

On March 18th 2021, N-EWN researchers Dr. Safra Altman and Dr. Marshall Shepherd hosted a workshop to engage Gulf, East coast and Caribbean partners and
stakeholders to compile data on current practices and limitations with respect to monitoring relevant
natural features in order to summarize this information and to identify potential collaborators to move forward with case study development.
