NEARC Fall 2015 has ended

Welcome to the technical sessions schedule for the 2015 Annual Fall NEARC Conference. 

 The technical schedule is capable of being sorted by date (i.e, Monday, Nov. 9) or track (i.e. USGS Hydro). You can also search for a presentation title (i.e. Harmonizing the NHD and WBD Datasets in Maine), key term (i.e. NHD), or presenter last name (i.e. O’Neil-Dunne). The sort and search functions can be found on the navigation panel on the right side of this page. If you hover over the "Schedule" button, you’ll also see different schedule view options (i.e. Grid or Simple). Try selecting each of them to see which view you prefer.

Ann Witzig, Essex Technical High School

Students in the Environmental Technology major at Essex Technical High School measured and mapped the impacts of sea level rise and hurricane storm surges on four towns on the Massachusetts North Shore. The final analysis was presented at a community interest group, Storm Surge, in Newburyport. The ESRI project creating storm surge elevations in coastal Mississippi from Hurricane Katrina assisted the development of bathtub models for sea level rise in Massachusetts. These data presented the communities a measure of their resilience to changing coastal processes over the next century.
