Climate Conversations: Sea Level Rise

Join the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) for a conversation about how to respond to the rising seas already threatening people, infrastructure and property on US coastlines.

People, infrastructure, and property along U.S. coastlines are already threatened by rising seas, which are projected to rise by an additional foot on average in the next 30 years. Robert Kopp (Rutgers University) will moderate a conversation with Tancred Miller (North Carolina Division of Coastal Management) and Christina Toms (San Francisco Bay Regional Water Quality Control Board) about how coastal managers and communities are experiencing and responding to sea level rise now, and how they are planning for the future.

The conversation will be webcast on the Climate Conversations: Sea Level Rise webpage on Thursday, April 21, 2022 from 3-4pm ET. Closed captioning will be provided. The conversation will include questions from the audience and will be recorded and available to view on the page after the event.
