In th is lecture\, Professor Malco lm Spaulding will provide an overview of global efforts to address one of the key challenges facing coastal planning and management: how to obje ctively quantify and assess the risks of storm surge faced by coastal infr astructure within the context of sea-level rise and eroding shorelines. Us ing examples applied to communities directly exposed to open ocean waves\, and communities on sheltered shores\, Professor Spaulding will explain ho w new mapping and modelling tools can support coastal communities to under stand the risks they are facing\, what damage may result under a range of future climate scenarios\, and how ocean engineering science can help mini mise these risks. \;

Anyone with an interest in coastal engineering or flood risk should find this talk interesting.
