Come join Stetson University Associate Professor of Environmental Science and Studies and Faculty Director for the Institute of Water and Environmental Resilience, Dr. Jason Evans, on an engaging and thought provoking lecture and discussion regarding Central Florida's plan for sea-level rise. Trained as a landscape and systems ecologist, most of Dr. Evan's recent research has focused on climate change adaptation within coastal communities, with a particular focus on sea-level rise. Largely through research support provided through the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), over the past several years he has conducted flood vulnerability assessments for numerous local governments in the southeast United States.
Some of these communities include Monroe County, the Village of Islamorada, Satellite Beach, and New Smyrna Beach, FL; Tybee Island and St. Mary's, GA; Hyde County, NC; and Beaufort, SC. Dr. Evans also serves as co-editor-in-chief for the Journal of Environmental Management, a leading international publication within the fields of environmental science, engineering and planning.
