The Architectural Team offers new ideas in waterfront development, design, and resiliency

As a leader of The Architectural Team, Inc. (TAT), Michael Liu, AIA, NCARB, draws on context-based research as well as global models to respond to rising sea levels, to foster revitalization, and to encourage a new mix of resilient and sustainable land uses.

Resiliency Plan Announced to Protect Lower Manhattan From Climate Change

A study that determined New York City's comprehensive strategy for the Lower Manhattan Coastal Resiliency (LMCR) project evaluated dozens of adaptation measures and identified a set of strategies to build resilience in Lower Manhattan.

Coastal Modeling Helps Prioritize Planning and Mitigation Efforts Due to Rising Seas and Storms

New U.S. Geological Survey-led coastal modeling research presents state, federal, and commercial entities with varying storm and sea level-rise scenarios to assist with planning for future infrastructure and mitigation needs along the California coast.

Dewberry Awarded for NYC’s Climate Resiliency Guidelines

Dewberry of New York City earned a National Recognition Award for exemplary engineering achievement in the American Council of Engineering Companies’ (ACEC) 52nd annual Engineering Excellence Awards (EEA) for development and testing of New York City’s new climate resiliency design guidelines.

Study yields new clues to predict tipping points for marsh survival

A massive new Duke University study could help stem losses to coastal wetlands by giving scientists a broader understanding of which wetlands are most at risk, and why.

Exploring permafrost coastal erosion in the Arctic

The remote town of Barrow, Alaska, home to more than 4,000 people, touts picturesque views of the Arctic Ocean as well as an unparalleled connection to the Alaskan wild, but underneath its stunning beauty lies a major global crisis — permafrost coastal erosion — causing Barrow to gradually slip into the sea.

Study suggests buried internet infrastructure at risk as sea levels rise

Thousands of miles of buried fiber optic cable in densely populated coastal regions of the United States may soon be inundated by rising seas, according to a new study by researchers at the University of Wisconsin–Madison and the University of Oregon.

Sea level rise requires new forms of decision making

U.S. cities facing sea level rise need to look beyond traditional strategies for managing issues such as critical erosion and coastal squeeze, according to new research from Lund University. Civil society initiatives must now play a crucial role in adapting society to climate change, the study argues.

WSP, Arcadis, Waggonner & Ball, and Yale Urban Design Workshop to design coastal resilience...

WSP, Arcadis, Waggonner & Ball, and Yale Urban Design Workshop were selected to design resilience measures to minimize flood risk and account for sea level rise affecting Bridgeport’s South End businesses and residents. The project is part of the $1 billion National Disaster Resilience Competition (NDRC), an initiative to help communities recover from disasters and safeguard against future hazards.
