Please join the Society of American Military Engineers Boston Post Young Member Committee for a presentation by a student team from Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) about climate change, sea level rise and the City of Boston. Climate Ready Boston (CRB) began the work of assessing the impact of climate change on the City of Boston in 2016 by looking at the effects of increased temperatures, precipitation, storms, and Sea Level Rise (SLR). The work pertaining to SLR was conducted in anticipation of 36″ of SLR by the year 2070. It is expected that new projections set to be released soon will show that Boston will experience 48″ of SLR by 2070 instead of 36″. This team was tasked with reassessing the effects of the additional foot of SLR on an area of the City.
