Storm Events and the North Carolina Coast: Improving Assessment and Response

Rachel T. Noble, Distinguished Professor of Marine Sciences, UNC Chapel Hill Institute of Marine Sciences 

Dr. Noble’s presentation reviewed novel storm event (including extreme events such as hurricanes) data collection approaches and the need for quantitative data for microbial and chemical contaminants in order to make positive improvements in coastal water quality in North Carolina.  The presentation included details on a current project that is ongoing in the Town of Beaufort, where collaboration with other stakeholders has resulted in unique data collection approaches, including autonomous boats.  Both the data presentation and the decision making part of stormwater assessments were explored.

The food was sponsored by the NCWRA. Credit goes to the Membership Committee for planning this event. Thank you guys, for a wonderful evening!
