Van Tuyl Lecture: Kevin Befus, University of Arkansas

September 15 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Kevin Befus, University of Arkansas

Berthoud 241/ Zoom, 4PM, Thursday, September 15, 2022

Topic: Sea Level Rise and Flooding from Below

Abstract: Coastal aquifers represent hidden sources of flooding for coastal communities. Relative sea-level rise could daylight coastal water tables, leading to new or more productive seepage. Feedbacks with the built environment could exacerbate meteoric and marine flooding events. My research group focus on understanding the hydrogeologic factors that lead to groundwater emergence hazards and how coastal stakeholders can adapt to and defend against changing hydrologic conditions.
