Mark Osler, Senior Advisor for Coastal Inundation and Resilience at NOAA
A great show from DC with insight into NOAA's coastal work
In this episode of The Capitol Beach, Derek Brockbank interviews Mark Osler with NOAA. As Senior Advisor for Coastal Inundation and Resilience, Mark works across all of NOAA (its four “Services”, two “Departments” and all sub-units) to coordinate and advance coastal resilience throughout the agency. He has a critical behind-the-scenes role with a great perspective on nearly all of NOAA’s coastal work. This 30 minute interview provides an incredibly encompassing look at how NOAA is addressing coastal resilience and serving coastal communities. Thoughtful and thorough, Mark is someone coastal scientists and advocates should get to know. Plus, when asked how NOAA is integrating climate change adaptation into its work, Mark dives deep and takes us all the way back to Thomas Jefferson!
