IDS2935 Living with Rising Seas

How much will sea level rise? What will be impacted by sea level rise?
How will humanity adapt to sea level rise?
This course examines the complex relationship between humans and coastlines. We will connect the science of sea level rise and coastal change to built, natural, and societal impacts. We will examine how social inequities within the United States exacerbate the disproportionate impacts of sea level rise, and we will consider the transformative shifts that will be necessary in decision-making to develop resilient, sustainable, and equitable coastal futures.
