- The public lecture “Weathering Uncertainty: Understanding climate and change in the Caribbean” was delivered at the Caribbean Youth Science Forum by Dr. Roger Pulwarty on August 4th, 2015. Dr. Pulwarty is a Senior Advisor for Climate, and Director of the U.S. National Integrated Drought Information System, at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The Caribbean is one of the most at-risk regions of the world for severe weather events, climate variability and climate change. Preparedness for, and adaptation to, such events necessitates the implementation of both disaster risk reduction and long-term resilience strategies. Dr. Pulwarty will discuss research he and colleagues from the region are conducting to assess the changes, develop early warnings of emergent risks, and implement adaptive practices in the face of a changing climate.
- South Florida's Rising Seas - Sea Level Rise Documentary (2014) Two SJMC faculty, Kate MacMillin and Juliet Pinto, explore the narrative of a South Florida community under threat from sea level rise in this half-hour documentary.
