Dr. Hal Wanless on Sea Level Rise in Miami

April 24 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Code for Miami is pleased to host Dr. Harold Wanless, Chair of the Department of Geological Sciences at the University of Miami for an invigorating discussion about sea level rise in South Florida.

Dr. Wanless is among the foundational scholars in environmental sciences. He is actively engaged with policy and legislative groups at the local to federal levels to guide necessary decisions, including speaking at Everglades Coalition annual meetings, to various Florida Legislative committees, environmental and industry executive and steering committees, and the Council on Environmental Quality in the White House. He is co-chair of the Science Committee of the Miami-Dade County Climate Change Advisory Task Force and works with the South Florida Regional Planning Council to provide the science background for and projections of sea level rise for the coming century.

This is the fourth monthly event on climate change and technology co-hosted by Florida International University’s Sea Level Solutions Center (http://slsc.fiu.edu/), School of Communication and Journalism (https://scj.fiu.edu/) and Code for Miami. Please contact Dr. Susan Jacobson susanjacobson at gmail dot com if you have questions.

You can contribute to an existing Code for Miami Project (see our projects at http://codefor.miami/projects) or come share your idea, and maybe start a new collaboration. As always, bring a laptop; beginners are always welcome!
