After Sandy: Climate and Our Coastal Future

A University forum featuring faculty researchers from Columbia’s University, Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, NASA-Goddard Institute for Space Studies, the Mailman School of Public Health, the Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science, and the School of International and Public Affairs. In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, Columbia faculty from schools, institutes, and centers from across the university have provided a key source of insight to the media, general public, and policy-makers about the related issues of climate change and sustainable development in the face of rising sea levels around the globe. This university-wide conversation, co-sponsored by the Earth Institute, Office of the Executive Vice President for Research, and World Leaders Forum, brings together just a few of the many Columbia researchers whose interdisciplinary work is adding to our understanding of the risks facing coastal communities, including New York City and its suburbs.
