Evenings at Whitney Lecture is a monthly public lecture series that includes presentations on current science topics, as well as ongoing research programs at the lab. The speakers are recognized experts in their fields who welcome questions and discussion.
April’s program is titled “A Deep Dive Into the Past, Present and Future of Sea-Level Rise Along the Florida Coast”. Andrea Dutton, associate professor at the University of Florida in the Department of Geological Sciences, will talk about sea-level rise and the long-term and short-term future of the Florida coastline.
Due to the warming of Earth, the seas are moving upward and landward inch by inch. In this lecture, Dutton will share about her research that looks to understand how much sea level will rise and how quickly it will happen. Her research uses both recent and ancient history to determine the dynamics of sea-level rise and to help prepare for the future.
Dutton is a Fellow of The Geological Society of America, Faculty Fellow of the University of Florida Thompson Earth Systems Institute and a Fulbright Scholar.
Lectures start at 7:00pm and are free. Registration or reservations are not needed. Parking is also free. For more information, please call 904-461-4000.
