‘Evening @ Skidaway’ to focus on rising sea level

The issue of rising sea level and its potential effects on Coastal Georgia will be the subject of the next “Evening @ Skidaway” program on Thursday, December 8.

The program will be presented in the McGowan Library Auditorium at the Skidaway Institute of Oceanography, beginning with a reception at 6:30 p.m. and followed at 7:15 p.m. by the science-oriented lecture program.

Skidaway Institute professor Clark Alexander will present an interesting and visual program on rising sea level. At its current rate, the ocean is rising at the rate of approximately a foot per century. Alexander will put the issue into a historic perspective; describe the forces that influence this trend; and outline what this may mean to those of us living along the coast.

Seating is limited. To assure a seat, RSVP by calling (912) 598-2325 or email to mike.sullivan@skio.usg.edu. Admission is free.

An “Evening @ Skidaway” is sponsored by the Skidaway Institute of Oceanography and the Skidaway Marine Science Foundation. # # # #
