USGS PI CASC Science Coordinator Heather Kerkering shares some of highlights from her Our Ocean conference and Palau experience.
Coastal hazards and adaptation
PI-CASC, with its partner Hawaiʻi Sea Grant and other university and government partners, conducted a series of conversations focused on sea-level rise, bringing together focus groups from university and government science and resource management organizations to address ongoing and emerging science information needs while maximizing shared capacity and avoiding duplication of efforts.
The Science to Management and Policy Professional Development Workshop for PI-CASC Scholars is set for March 2, 2022 HST / March 3, 2022 CHST.
Our March “Slice of PI-CASC” seminar will be presented by Dr. Kasey Barton, Associate Professor at UH Mānoa, who will discuss resilience of coastal plants against sea-level rise.
This augmented reality app lets you visualize the future of sea-level rise at Pu’uohonua o Honauanua National Historical Park as if you were cruising over the peninsula in a helicopter!
Our February “Slice of PI-CASC” seminar will be presented by Dr. Ryan Perroy, Associate Professor at UH Hilo, discussing an ongoing project to inventory the entire coastline of Hawaiʻi Island in an effort to prepare for rising sea levels.
A Hawaiʻi Island-based coastal setback project and its leaders were featured in a video during a panel of community adaptation and resilience leaders discussing adaptation projects from across the U.S. on November 8, 2021.
Coral resilience analysis in Guam and American Samoa has yielded GIS data layers suitable for mapping, looking at growth and survivability of corals under several future climate scenarios.
An inspiring video of a PI-CASC-funded Hawai’i Island was highlighted for a global audience, sharing the effectiveness of knowledge co-production to tackling climate change adaptation challenges.
Our December “Slice of PI-CASC” seminar will be presented by Dr. Phil Thompson, Assistant Professor in the Dept. of Oceanography and Director of the UH Sea Level Center, at UH Mānoa.
