2014 Workshop Header

Our dynamic coastline is changing faster than ever before. Changes are visible over the last 50, 30 and even 10 years. The environmental, social and economic results are palpable and can make us less resilient, particularly when more intense conditions affect our coastal state resulting in even greater impact at the national level due to potential energy, food, and community effects. 

The Shell Center for Sustainability presents How Sustainable is the Texas Coast? Are we in a "state of denial"? A workshop that presents the most recent scientific data modeled by a team of multidisciplinary researchers working together to measure what these effects will mean to us.

The workshop takes place on Wednesday, October 29, 2014, at McMurtry Auditorium in Duncan  Hall, on the Rice University campus.
