    Contact: Madhu Gupta   860-447-1411 x 3   mgupta@plnl.org
   

The temperature of Long Island Sound has increased by 1.8° F since 1900. The temperature increase will impact flora, fauna, water quality and sea level.

Storms Irene and Sandy showed just how vulnerable coastal Connecticut is to damage from storms and tidal inundation. The impacts of climate change on coastal municipalities is likely to result in heavier downpours, more vulnerable beaches and dunes, and increases to the land and infrastructure that could be inundated by rising sea levels. These events challenge communities to come up with adaptation strategies to deal with impacts from climate change and many communities are working to address this challenge.

This presentation will explore predicted climate change impacts for Connecticut over the next 100 years and adaptation strategies to improve our resilience.

About the Presenter:

Juliana Barrett is an ecologist and her focus is the coastal habitats of Connecticut. She is the co-author of The Vegetation of Connecticut, a Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection publication.
