From the moon’s “wobble” to augmented reality: Understanding and communicating the impacts of sea-level rise in Hawaiʻi
with Dr. Phil Thompson, Dept. of Oceanography & UH Sea Level Center, UH Mānoa
December 7, 2021, 12:00-1:00 pm (Hawaiʻi time)
Note: This will be a hybrid event with both zoom availability and a limited numbers of guests (≤15) attending in person (masked and vaccinated) at the Hawaiʻi Institute of Geophysics (HIG) building, room 210, on the UH Mānoa campus. If you are interested in attending in person, please email rlentz at hawaii.edu.
Sea-level rise is impacting island communities across the Pacific, and the frequency and severity of impacts are certain to increase in coming decades. Dr. Thompson will discuss how and why the impacts of sea-level rise will evolve differently across the Pacific, as well as newly developed tools for communicating the risk posed to coastal communities, infrastructure, and cultural assets.
Join us for the next seminar of the “Slice of PI-CASC” seminar series hosted by the Pacific Islands Climate Adaptation Science Center! The series is designed for a wide audience to learn about climate adaptation research and science-to-management applications for Hawai’i, the US-Affiliated Pacific Islands, and beyond.
