Event Description

Agenda:

Marine Sciences Professor and CIRCA Executive Director, James O'Donnell will present sea level rise projections for the state of Connecticut. These projections update the global mean sea level rise projections produced by NOAA (2012 CPO-1 report) using Connecticut's local tide gauge information and the current best available science. Based on the updated projections, CIRCA recommends that planning anticipates that sea level will be 0.5 m (1ft 8inches) higher than the national tidal datum in Long Island Sound by 2050 and that it is likely that sea level will continue to increase after 2050.

 

UConn Law School CEEL Professor-in-Residence, Joe MacDougald and CEEL legal fellow, Bill Rath will also present their CIRCA study on the legal and policy implications of sea level rise for Connecticut and their survey of state sea level rise policies.

 

The Executive Summary of the sea level rise projections report can be found here.

 

Who Should Attend:

The meeting and simultaneous webinar are free and open to the public. Municipal staff and elected leaders concerned about or in the process of planning for sea level rise and coastal resilience are encouraged to attend. Following the presentations, there will be an opportunity for questions from the audience.
