Bridging the Climate Divide: Informing the Response to Hurricane Sandy and Implications for Future Vulnerability - October 2013
In late October 2012, Hurricane Sandy made landfall in New Jersey -- impacting New Jersey in profound ways. This conference, open to the public, was held in commemoration of the first anniversary of that event and examined the factors leading up to the storm, its impacts, the response and recovery, and the implications for future vulnerability.
The conference highlighted the scholarship that Rutgers' faculty and staff continue to bring to the climate change arena. The keynote address was delivered by Joseph J. Seneca, professor of environmental economics and policy at the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy, on "Sandy, Climate Policy, and Rutgers: An Overview."
Panelists represented a wide cross-section of faculty and staff from such departments as Marine and Coastal Sciences, Human Ecology, Social Work, Geography, Earth and Planetary Sciences, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Environmental Sciences, Latino and Hispanic Caribbean Studies, and Mathematics. The welcome was delivered by Richard L. Edwards, executive vice president for academic affairs.
