Warming Up to Climate Change: RI Collaborative Launches New Website

Published on March 5, 2014

A group of scientists from the University of Rhode Island, in cooperation with several agencies, is launching a new website to educate people about climate change and its effect on the Ocean State. The Waves of Change website is designed as a resource for people with varying degrees of scientific knowledge.

"Rhode Islanders need the best information available as they adapt to coastal erosion, higher risk from storm surge, shifting seasons and fisheries, and other effects related to climate change," said U.S. Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, who will helped announce the website at URI's Coastal Institute in Narragansett.
