How storms impact the coasts

April 29, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Fraser Building, Fraser Bldg, Victoria, BC V8P 5C2, Canada

MARINE NIGHT 

How storms impact the coasts
Dr. David Atkinson, Department of Geography at UVic, will discuss how storms affect the ocean and impact the coast. How does the nature of the coast—water depth, type of beach material, coast shape—affect how a storm can cause impact? What are special features of the Arctic coastal zone? Why are there bigger waves in winter? To hear the answers to these questions, meet at 7:30 p.m. in Room 159, Fraser Building, UVic. Everyone welcome. Note UVic Parking is $3.
