Coastal Hazards Talk at Skidaway Institute

  • Tuesday, May 21, 2013
  • 6:00 PM
  • UGA Marex Aquarium
     Skidaway Institute of Oceanography scientist Clark Alexander will present an informative and visual program on threats to the Georgia Coast in an "Evening @ Skidaway" reception and lecture on Tuesday, May 21, on the campus of Skidaway Institute.

The program will begin at 6:15 p.m. with a reception at the University of Georgia MAREX Aquarium to be followed by the science talk at 7:15 p.m. in the McGowan Library Auditorium. The program is open to the public, and admission is free.

Alexander's talk is entitled, "Coastal Crystal Ball: A Look at the Future of Georgia's Changing Coastline." Drawing on two decades of work in the area, he will discuss coastal hazards relevant to Georgia, such as storms, beach erosion, and sea level rise. Alexander will introduce the Georgia Coastal Hazards Portal, a web-based tool that anyone can use to assess their specific exposure to coastal hazards, and present up-to-the-minute results of ongoing research to better quantify coastal Georgia's hazard vulnerability.

The reception will include a demonstration of the Georgia Coastal Hazards Portal display located at the Aquarium. Seating is limited. Please reserve seats by calling 912- 598-2325 or email mike.sullivan@skio.usg.edu.

An "Evening @ Skidaway" is sponsored by the Skidaway Institute of Oceanography and the Skidaway Marine Science Foundation.
