GRP Emerging ScienTalks: Webinar Series Understanding Impacts of Neighborhood Flooding: A Case of the Pensacola Bay Watershed

  • This event has passed.
January 21, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Event Navigation

The GRP invites educators and parents with students of all ages to join us for an hour of engaging science discussions with Dr. Kwame Owusu-Daaku for the first webinar in the series Emerging ScienTalks. 

About Emerging ScienTalks

Emerging ScienTalks connects scientists with communities. In this webinar series, the Gulf Research Program’s Early-Career fellows engage with community members of all ages as they discuss how their work seeks to improve the well-being of coastal communities, protect ecosystems, and increase the safety of offshore energy operations.

This Month We Will Discuss

Dr. Kwame Owusu-Daaku from the University of West Florida investigates the urbanization of watersheds. Urbanization contributes to greenhouse gas emissions, which influences climate change–resulting in an increased frequency and intensity of weather events such as rainfall. 

Not all neighborhoods experience and are impacted by flooding in the same way. Dr. Owusu-Daaku examines the historic 2014 flood event in the Pensacola Bay watershed. Participants will have the opportunity to look at current flood trends and projected future sea-level rise for the Pensacola Bay watershed. At the end of the webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Recognize that scientists come from all kinds of backgrounds and possess varied talents, interests, and goals.
  • Identify the impacts that humans have had on Earth.
  • Discuss how natural disasters have affected human life.
  • Explain how scientific knowledge and reasoning inform society’s decision making.
