Preparing Our Coastal Communities: Using Climate Science to Guide NH Decisions for Today and Tomorrow
What?
Join us for a conversation with scientists who authored the recent NH Coastal Risks & Hazards Commission Science & Technical Advisory Panel report. The report includes the latest local projections for sea-level rise, precipitation amounts, and storm surges from coastal storms. Learn how this information can help guide our decision-making in the coast.
When?
