Southeast CASC Science Seminar: Research for Adaptation Planning at Gulf Islands National Seashore
- This event has passed.
Join the Southeast Climate Adaptation Science Center for a virtual science seminar series highlighting SE CASC funded projects supporting resource management actions across the Southeast. In these seminars SE CASC researchers provide an overview of their work and the management implications of their research findings.
Seminar Title: Prioritizing and Implementing Research for Adaptation Planning at Gulf Islands National Seashore
Speakers: Dr. Erin Seekamp, North Carolina State University and Dr. James Flocks, USGS St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center
This presentation will provide an overview of sediment budget research and data needs that can enhance the National Park Service’s efforts to conserve the islands’ natural resources, cultural resources, and the facilities and infrastructure that support both conservation and visitor use of those resources. Key budget research and data needs were identified during a 2020 workshop series with diverse regional stakeholders (i.e., federal, state, and regional governmental agencies and non-governmental and academic researchers), who also assessed the importance and urgency of thematically group research and data needs. Additionally, the presentation will provide an update on recent USGS-led research projects focusing on coastal change and sediment transport processes at the Gulf Islands National Seashore.
