How is climate change impacting Nantucket today: this talk will explore the definitions of climate change and current impacts including sea level rise, erosion, rising groundwater, and storm surge. We will explore the models used to predict these impacts and get a solid understanding of the terminology as well as the current and future island trends. Drs. Jen Karberg (NCF) and Sarah Bois (LLNF) will share their extensive knowledge about Nantucket’s coastal ecology, including in-depth discussion of coastal processes, climate change, and what it means for Nantucket’s coastal habitats, current nature-based coastal resilience efforts and potential future coastal responses.

The lecture is FREE and open to all, but registration is required. Please register for the zoom link here.
