Rhode Island: A Sinking State

  • URI Coastal Institute Auditorium 215 South Ferry Road Narragansett, RI, 02882 United States (map)

About: Although Rhode Island is losing only 1 millimeter of ground annually, it plays a meaningful role in present-day flooding along a coastal state that is mostly at sea level or 10 to 30 feet above. Simon Engelhart, a University of Rhode Island researcher reconstructing past sea-level rise to gain a better understanding of how the land responds to better inform resiliency measures by coastal managers, will lead the discussion.
