Sea level rise is already threatening many coastal communities across Florida. In this presentation, Dr. Thomas Wahl will explain the different processes that lead to sea level rise, why it is rising faster in some places than others, discuss the various impacts it has for coastal residents, and highlight ways to offset those impacts. Wahl will point to several online resources where everyone can get information on how sea level and flooding may change for their particular location.
