Climate Change Adaptation for Seaport Communities: A Research Agenda

Austin Becker

As a scientist working at the interface of ocean dynamics and human systems, Prof. Austin Becker's work develops insights that contribute fundamental knowledge about the coastal environment. Such knowledge is critical in an emergent era of more frequent extreme coastal weather events coupled with great uncertainty about how people along affected coasts will respond or adapt to them. Oceanic forcing from sea-level rise and storm surge confronts vulnerable people and the communities in which they live. Prof. Becker's focus is on seaports as an exemplar to understand the broader consequences of increasing risk to climate-driven natural disasters, as well as the options available to enhance resilience. Seaports serve a critical role in the economy at every scale, facilitating 90% of world trade, providing goods and services to their regions, and supporting 13 million jobs in the U.S. alone. Ports also face a combination of risks within the environmental, social, economic, and political landscape. They consist of complex and interdependent decision-making governance structures, and their geographical and intermodal requirements constrain them to environmentally sensitive and exposed locations. Hurricane Sandy, for example, resulted in $170M of direct damages to the Port of NY/NJ and major supply chain disruptions that rippled across the country. Planning holistically for the long-term and complex challenge of climate change adaptation requires the fundamental knowledge generated in his research. 

Prof. Becker’s research group focuses on the question: How can ports and their associated communities jointly develop comprehensive approaches and solutions that reduce climate-related risk in a way that is, sustainable, affordable and just?  He will discuss various projects underway in his research lab, including: vulnerability and resilience assessments, resilience indexing, leadership incentives, and more.

Refreshments will be served.

Please RSVP to marineaffairs@rwu.edu.
