Full Description
In 2011, Virginia's General Assembly issued a joint resolution calling for the Virginia Institute of Marine Science to investigate how the Commonwealth can best respond to "recurrent coastal flooding." Join VIMS researcher Molly Mitchell--the report's lead author--as she highlights the study's findings, including a review of potential adaptation strategies from around the world, and specific recommendations for the options that would most effectively protect communities, roadways, and military installations in Tidewater Virginia and along the Eastern Shore.

Mitchell's presentation is the inaugural event for the 2013 After Hours Lecture Series at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science.
