Lunchtime Discovery: It’s Flooding More Than We Know

  • Wednesday, December 06, 2023
  • 12:00pm - 1:00pm

Sampling floodwater on the NC coast.

Dr. Katherine Anarde, Assistant Professor, Coastal Engineering, Department of Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering, North Carolina State University

Sea-level rise is increasing coastal flood exposure globally, with tens of millions of people at risk to coastal flooding in the United States alone. In many low-lying areas, sea-level rise is causing flooding more and more often outside of extreme events — but evidence of the extent and frequency of such floods is scarce. Join Dr. Anarde to find out what scientists are doing across North Carolina to obtain data on flooding and better understand the true burden of sea-level rise on individuals and communities.
