Southampton_lecture_20130405

The year 2012 was remarkable for Long Island. Hurricane Sandy brought unparalleled 

devastation, including the loss the human life. Within the South Shore Estuary Reserve, 

sewage treatment plants were compromised by the storm, permitting hundreds of 

millions of gallons of raw sewage to spill into waterways and closing shellfish beds for 

more than three months. The storm created three new barrier island inlets, one of 

which is now wider than the Shinnecock Inlet. Beyond the storm, the spring of 2012 

brought the hottest water temperatures on record (dating to 1850) and began a 

succession of harmful algal blooms that closed >10,000 acres of shellfish beds, acidified 

estuarine waters, and were responsible for the deaths of finfish, shellfish, and even 

pets. These blooms were supported by land derived nitrogen loading that increases 

annually suggesting these events may intensify. This presentation will review these 

occurrences, their interconnected nature, their lasting impact, and options for 

mitigating them and protecting coastal resources as Long Island confronts threats that 

may become more common or more intense in the near future.

 

All lectures will be held at Duke Lecture Hall- Chancellor’s Hall Southampton Campus

The lecture will be preceded and followed by a reception
