Predicting Storm Surge in a Scenario of Rising Sea Level
Thurs., July 19, 5-7 pm
Hutchinson Center, Belfast
Belfast Bay Watershed Coalition volunteers have been monitoring and reporting data from sensors placed in Belfast and Searsport harbors. The work has been part of a University of Maine study on how to predict a coming storm surge.
The interactive data sharing event, led by UMaine professors Kim Huguenard and Laura Rickard, will showcase results of an ongoing, National Science Foundation-funded citizen science project to measure storm surge in estuaries of Bass Harbor and Southwest Harbor, and the Penobscot and Bagaduce rivers. Results will highlight data collected by local community members, including storm surge levels during recent storm events.
Discussion will focus on how this information can help communities plan for future coastal development and climate change adaptation.
