THINK WATER, THINK CEDAR KEY THE POWER OF WATER WEEK FOUR
Saturday, April 30 -10 am
Cedar Key Public Library – 460 2nd Street
Water, Water Everywhere! The Gulf water surrounding Cedar Key is a powerful force of change, through daily tides, occasional storm surges, and long-term sea level rise. Frank will present the results of a three-year study to understand past, current, and future coastal changes and their impacts on Cedar Key. She will identify Cedar Key’s vulnerabilities to flooding, erosion, and saltwater intrusion, as well as community strengths and options for adapting to the changes.
Dr. Kathryn Frank, an assistant professor in the Department of Urban and Regional Planning at UF, has led $1 million in applied research projects focused on local adaptation to sea level rise.
