"The Old Dominion University Climate Change and Sea Level Rise Initiative will bring the university and the region's foremost experts together to find solutions to the challenges facing our region and other regions globally."
ODU's Climate Change and Sea Level Rise Initiative (CCSLRI) facilitates research and education in all aspects of climate change and sea level rise. Because of our location there is special emphasis on adaptation to increased flooding because of sea level rise. There are many other aspects of climate change affecting coastal cities such as public health or disaster preparedness that the initiative also addresses. Please see Related Research Groups for more information.
At the local level the University will provide appropriate leadership to regional leaders and distribute accurate information to the citizens. At national and international levels faculty researchers and educators will develop projects at other locations using the knowledge gained locally.
The University is building the initiative through internal research grants, faculty hires at all levels and all disciplines and other actions to help faculty participate.
Initiative Newsletters provide quarterly updates and provide a good overview of recent activities.
Visit the CCSLRI web workspace to get more information or if you would like to receive occasional information about the initiative or have a question or comment contact those listed in the right hand column.
Many different research centers and groups support and are affiliated with CCSLRI.
