DAY 5: Friday, July 14
On Friday afternoon, an optional 4-hour field trip is planned to examine adaptation to sea level extremes and sea level rise in New York City. This will consider the needs for long-term adaptation to sea-level rise and will also consider the effects and ongoing response to Superstorm Sandy. We will visit a selection of sites and expect to meet with officials who are engaged with adaptation decision making. An introductory lecture to the field trip will also be provided.
Participation will be limited based on first-come sign-up. Sign-up and payment of the additional event fee for this event will be accepted when registration opens in March.
