The CapeLab's work was featured on WCAI, local NPR for the Cape, Coast & Islands.
"In a first-of-its-kind project, the four outer Cape towns are developing a joint coastal management plan. The work in Eastham, Wellfleet, Truro and Provincetown could result in cost savings, larger beach nourishment projects, and more protected and resilient coastal infrastructure, according to project managers.

Please join us for the final presentation of the Storm Tide Pathway Mapping project that CaPE Lab scientist have completed for the Towns of Scituate and Cohasset through a Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness (MVP) funded grant on Thursday, May 28th at 12:30pm.
The CaPE lab team will detail the findings and how their tide data can be used for emergency preparedness planning related to sea level rise and coastal storm flooding. The presentation to be hosted on Zoom can be accessed through the link on the attached flyer.
The CaPE Lab is offering a fully funded, full-time position for a 3-year appointment for a post-doc researching estuarine sedimentation to support tidal restoration.

Join CaPE Lab director Dr. Mark Borrelli and Center for Coastal Studies president and CEO Rich Delaney for a Dockside Chat on Storm Tide Pathways!
They are the low-lying areas that channel flood waters during extreme high tide episodes. These maps and models help vulnerable coastal communities prepare for the inevitable effects of climate-related storm surges and sea level rise on infrastructure and natural resources.
