DOVER — A North Carolina living shorelines application is the topic of a free webinar at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 16, presented by the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control, in partnership with the Delaware Living Shorelines Committee.
The webinar speakers are Jenny Davis, of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and Lora Eddy, of The Nature Conservancy.
Ms. Davis and Ms. Eddy will discuss how TNC partnered with NOAA’s Beaufort, North Carolina lab to create a living shorelines app. Their presentation will showcase research on North Carolina shorelines in the southern Pamlico, Core and Bogue Sounds and the New River Estuary, as well as discuss the app’s goal of helping people identify where more natural techniques can stabilize their shorelines.
This digital tool identifies where shoreline wave energy conditions are suitable to ensure successful living shoreline projects. Webinar presenters will help the audience learn more about the North Carolina living shorelines app, including the purpose, development and practical uses of the tool.
