RISC-KIT researchers evaluate the effectiveness of different adaptation strategies for barrier islands facing sea level rise and extreme weather events.
A new collaborative publication for RISC-KIT.
RISC-KIT’s coordinator, Ap Van Dongeren, Deltares, recently joined with researchers from the University of South Alabama and Virginia Tech, USA, to determine the effectiveness of different mitigation approaches for barrier islands facing threats from coastal storms together with sea level rise. Using a narrow barrier island on the New Jersey coast of North America as a model, the team looked at different scenarios from different points in time to evaluate the adaptation strategies adopted for the system.
