Speaker: Andy Haub, City of Olympia
Title: Olympia's Response to Sea Level Rise.

Abstract: In 2007, the City of Olympia initiated a technical assessment of potential sea rise, high tide, and storm event interactions for its flood-prone downtown. Detailed knowledge of the downtown's land elevations and pipe systems were used in computer simulations of various flood scenarios. The results provide a good understanding of how sea rise may progressively affect the Olympia's downtown.

CIG Seminars during winter quarter will be held in the UW Academic Computer Center, Room 120, 3737 Brooklyn Ave, Seattle.
