Humboldt Bay Sea Level Rise Adaptation Planning Project

Time: 6:00 pm-7:30 pm

Description:

Aldaron Laird is a sea level rise planner for the Humboldt Bay Sea Level Rise Adaptation Planning Project. He will present his recently completed project in which he inventoried and mapped Humboldt Bay’s shoreline to assess its vulnerability to sea level rise. He will identify infrastructure and land uses that are susceptible to sea level rise due to climate change. Anyone interested in GIS, local land use planning, environmental science, geography, geology, or all of the above should attend this lecture.

Aldaron has a comprehensive background in environmental planning and he specializes in regulatory compliance with California's aquatic environments. Since 2006 he has served as the Director, and currently the president of Humboldt Bay Municipal Water District, and as the Director and the Chair of the North Coast region for the Association of California Water Agencies. In 2007, he produced a digital historical atlas of the Humboldt Bay and Eel River Delta. In 2012, he completed the Humboldt Bay Shoreline Inventory, Mapping and Sea Level Rise Vulnerability Assessment report.
