Event Date:

Thirty U.S. states have a coastline of some kind, and most coastal areas are experiencing an increase in flooding. At SciLine’s next media briefing, scientists will discuss which coastal regions are most vulnerable to different types of floods; the effects of flooding on local wastewater treatment systems and other municipal infrastructure; risks to aquifers and crops from saltwater intrusion; and projections of regional flood patterns for the near future. Three panelists will make brief presentations, and then take questions on the record.
