Seminar: Sea Level Rise, Changing Tides and Stronger Storm Surges in the Chesapeake Bay
Date: April 10, 2018
Time: 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join us at the oldest state-supported marine lab on the East Coast, the Chesapeake Biological Laboratory (CBL), to learn about innovative research being pioneered by University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science (UMCES) scientists. This Week:
Presented byDr. Ming Li, Professor, Horn Point Lab, UMCES
Climate change, sea level rise, and associated storms are putting Maryland’s people, property, natural resources, and public investments at risk. Sea level rise and ocean warming may produce unexpectedly high sea levels in the Chesapeake Bay and cause extensive flooding in Maryland. Dr. Li will describe his current research into the regional impact of climate change and extreme weather events on the Chesapeake Bay. He will also show how different coastline management options lead to dramatic differences in the response of tidal ranges and storm surges to sea level rise.
This is a free event. Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
