Sea level rise is a persistent and long-term problem. The predicted impacts on homes, businesses, and critical infrastructure, including working waterfronts, could structurally change the communities and economies along our coast. These changes may happen over a long period of time, or they may happen abruptly if we are hit with a large storm. This lecture will discuss the basics of sea level rise, including projections for future water levels, and how the Island Institute is working to build the capacity of Maine’s island and coastal communities to help them adapt in the face of these changes.


Susie Arnold, Ph.D., Marine Scientist, Island Institute
