Meeting To Consider Storm-Surge Barriers for New York City

Publication Date: 1/7/2009
Format: HTML

A group of engineers and scientists will host a conference this spring to push for development of design criteria for storm-surge barriers to protect New York City. Global warming, rising sea levels and more frequent and violent storms mean the city inevitably will face a devastating hurricane, says conference organizer Douglas Hill, a consulting engineer and adjunct lecturer at the School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences at Stony Brook University, Stony Brook, N.Y. Hill is working with the American Society of Civil Engineers N.Y. Metropolitan Section’s Infrastructure Group and the New York Academy of Sciences, as well as with municipal and industry supporters. It will be held March 30-31 at the Polytechnic Institute of New York University, in Brooklyn.
