Urban Adaptations for Rising Sea Levels
Sea levels are expected to rise dramatically over the next 50 to 100 years, and coastal cities like Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, London, and Shanghai are especially vulnerable. Leading landscape architects, city planners, engineers, and architects discuss adaptations for flood-proofing in our wetter, warmer future. With UC Berkley Professor of Landscape Architecture Kristina Hill, coastal geomorphologist Jeremy Lowe, and civil engineer Peter Wijsman.
