The Challenges of Coastal Flood Protection

Large populations worldwide are at high risk from coastal flooding, either from storm surge events such as hurricanes or the pervasive long-term rise in sea level associated with global warming.

In the Dec. 20, 2012, Faculty Forum Online broadcast, Professor Andrew J. Whittle ScD ’87, head of MIT’s Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, discussed the challenges of flood protection using examples from experiences in New York, New Orleans, and Venice.

During the broadcast, Whittle took questions from the worldwide MIT community via video chat. Watch the video then visit the Slice of MIT blog and continue the conversation in the comments.
