Nate in My Front Yard, Sea-level Rise in My Office

Cleanup continues on Dauphin Island, Alabama, following landfall of Hurricane Nate in the region last week. Many residents of the island are just now getting access to their homes after Nate’s storm surge buried nearly three miles of Bienville Boulevard in sand.

Renee Collini, who lives on Dauphin Island and coordinates NOAA’s Northern Gulf of Mexico Sentinel Site Cooperative out of the Dauphin Island Sea Lab, has written a blog post about her experience with Hurricane Nate and her sea level rise research, some of which is funded through NCCOS’s Ecological Effects of Sea Level Rise (EESLR) Program.
