Nov 30th, 2022 @ 7 pm ET: Ottawa SYP Water Talk – Investigating Nature-Based Solutions in Coastal Engineering with Scott Baker
Presentation Title: Investigating Nature-Based Solutions in Coastal Engineering
Speaker: Scott Baker
The global risk associated with coastal ﬂooding and erosion has increased substantially over the past several decades, as a consequence of population growth, development in coastal zones, and climate change effects including sea-level rise. There is a large and growing body of evidence surrounding the beneﬁts of natural and nature-based solutions as viable alternatives or complements to conventional (hard) engineering shore protection measures. This presentation will highlight recent physical modelling research studies conducted by the National Research Council of Canada to investigate nature-based solutions in coastal engineering.
