DATE: Thursday, August 25, 2016

TIME: 6-8 pm

LOCATION: URI Narragansett Bay Campus, COASTAL INSTITUTE AUDITORIUM (Building #26 on this map)

TOPIC:   RI Shoreline Change Special Area Management Plan (SAMP) project updates:

  1. Statewide Vulnerability Assessment Presenters will share an analysis of data from the statewide “e-911” database to offer an overview of structures exposed to storm events with and without future sea level rise scenarios for each of the 21 coastal towns in Rhode Island!
  2. Coastal Environmental Risk Index (CERI) This proof-of-concept pilot project for two Rhode Island municipalities is applying the best available science to assess risk and levels of damage to coastal structures from erosion, storms, and projected sea level rise so local decision makers have the tools they need to evaluate policy alternatives and implementation projects.

Pizza will be served at 5:30 p.m. in the Coastal Institute Hazard Rooms.
