Mark and Meghan talk New York State’s Coastal Management Program with Steve Resler
As severe weather continues to deeply impact the lives of people around the world, questions remain about preparation for storms in Troy and the rest of upstate New York. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has measured 2,625 miles of coastline in New York, land that consists of barrier islands, dunes, bluffs, beaches, and tidal wetlands. Tonight we are joined by Steve Resler, former deputy bureau chief of New York State’s Coastal Management Program and a long time marine field researcher and scientific diver. He will join us for a discussion of planning for the state’s coast and a definition of the state’s coastal hazards, and how these hazards will impact upstream cities such as Troy.
