As the climate changes and sea levels rise, coastal communities around the world are already feeling the impact of their changing landscape. But how much water do we expect? When? Where? And what are we doing now to prepare?

A panel of William & Mary faculty, students and alumni will discuss the science behind sea level rise, the implications for our coastal communities and beyond, and how cross-disciplinary collaborations at W&M are addressing the complex environmental, social, economic and legal issues involved.
