If you're involved in
research, education or community outreach on environmental topics, we hope our new monthly newsletter will be a conversation starter. Each month you'll find the latest from CES on wetlands ecology and/or coastal resilience.
In this issue read about next steps following our 3-day Sea-Level Rise Summit, including the document "Adaptation Pathways 1.0" fresh off the presses. We welcome your feedback. In addition you can
watch our new commercial and learn about a job opportunity.
Let's connect at one of the
upcoming events (see below) or
email me with your comments on the Adaptation Pathways document. In next month's issue:

To recruit top students, a new 30-second commercial will air on television and in local movie theaters. FAU's School of Architecture student Heather Akers explains how the program addresses today's sea-level rise challenges and prepares her for a career.
The challenges to infrastructure, health and urban planning in the face of sea-level rise resonated with all of us. We compiled a document titled "Adaptation Pathways 1.0" as a guide to moving toward more resilient cities. In case you missed it, you can skim the Executive Summary or full document.
Following up on interest from the private and public sectors, we continue to engage with the community. Recently, CES presented at the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce
Big Ideas Conference. Look for us at the upcoming Chamber Breakfast focused on fighting "Brain Drain" and the SE Florida Regional Climate Leadership Summit.
The Environmental Geophysics Lab in the Department of Geosciences at FAU focuses on the use of near-surface hydrogeophysical methods to investigate a wide array of environmental issues at both the laboratory and field scales.
