This is a hands-on session to learn about how to apply sea level rise projections and use various tools to better visualize and understand the implications for Island County.
Through the use of web-based mapping tools and sea level rise projections, participants will try out using sea level rise projections for various locations and different timeframes through 2100.
Participants will also explore various options for how to address impacts of sea level rise on shoreline properties, whether public or private.
This class is the second class of a series of three classes on sea level rise at Sound Waters University 2020. In the first class, (Session A), Ian Miller will discuss the phenomenon of sea level rise, what it is, what causes it and what approaches are used to project future changes. In the third class, (Session C), Meredith Penny and Anna Toledo will present on adaptive strategies and shoreline regulations. You may attend any or all classes in the series.
