Barrier Islands and Sea Level Rise: Coastal Community Transformations

December 10 from 5:00 am6:00 pm

Final Studio Presentation 

Barrier Islands and Sea Level Rise: Coastal Community Transformations

 

Studio members will present their research and resilience communications strategies developed to assist Long Beach Township in preparing for sea level rise, flooding and evacuations. Barrier islands exist along much of the US coastline. They must transform themselves to accommodate increasing coastal hazards. New Jersey’s coastal communities are already facing major difficulties from tidal and storm flooding. Assessments of Long Beach Township pointed to a need for improved engagement and communication with full and part-time residents over multiple media. The studio addresses these needs with broad resilience communication strategies.
