Dr. Rob Young on the State of Coastal Retreat
Should I stay or should I go, It's the Clash ahead
On this episode, Peter Ravella and Tyler Buckingham welcome Dr. Rob Young back to the show to talk about the recent shoreline armoring trends (NYC/NJ, Florida Keys, Orange County, CA) and the seeming move away from structural solutions. When should we armor? When should we hold the shoreline? When should we get the hell out of the way and let the coast migrate? No easy answers. We also talk about the work of Orrin Pilkey's creation, the Program for the Study of Developed Shorelines at Western Carolina University, which Rob now leads. Finally, we conclude with March Madness and a fast break discussion on Carolina hoops and the differences between the East Coast and West Coast games. Can it be explained geomorphologically? Only on ASPN.
