LECTURE: History Treading Water: Sea Level Rise and the future of Coastal Herita

April 27, 2016

Global sea levels have risen about eight inches in the twentieth century. The rate of annual rise has doubled in the past few decades and estimates are that sea levels could rise one to six feet by the end of the century. Efforts are underway to strengthen the resilience of coastal communities and prepare them for the adverse impacts of short- and long-term flooding. Not as much attention, however, has been given to protecting heritage resources or preparing for their loss.This presentation examines the threat of sea level rise to historic cities and cultural resources and explores strategies for adaptation or mitigation.

Speaker: Morris Hylton III, Director of Historic Preservation Program College of Design, Construction and Planning, University of Florida
