The 46th Annual Meeting of Massachusetts Marine Educators
2022 Woods Hole Conference
Dr. Mark Borrelli Mapping Storm Tide Pathways: Coastal Storms, Sea Level Rise and Emergency Response Mark is the Director of the Coastal Processes and Ecosystems Lab (CaPE Lab), a joint research lab between the Center for Coastal Studies in Provincetown and the University of Massachusetts, Boston. Using the recent and ongoing mapping of storm tide pathways we will examine the scientific method, the idea of uncertainty, coastal storms and sea level rise. As educators in a coastal state we need to be well-versed in these areas and provide our students with the relevant information to engage and inspire them to become informed members of society, a society that will continue to be profoundly impacted by climate change.
