Today the Sustainable Solutions Lab at UMass Boston is releasing Feasibility of Harbor-wide Barriers: Preliminary Analysis for Boston Harbor.
This report, sponsored by the Boston Green Ribbon Commission with generous support of the Barr Foundation found that shore-based climate adaptation strategies have significant advantages over harbor-wide strategies for the region.
The project team included faculty, students and staff from the School for the Environment (SFE) and the Urban Harbors Institute (now part of SFE) as well as Arcadis, Woods Hole Group and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. Paul Kirshen, Academic Director of the Sustainable Solutions Lab was the Principle Investigator.
