Synopsis
  • This video from the Rutgers Climate Institute focuses on the research done by Amanda O'Lear, a graduate student at Rutgers University. 
  • Her research found that almost all of New Jersey's historic sites are at risk of flooding.
  • Her research categorizes these sites by flood risk and can be used to prioritize safety measures for the historic sites most at risk. 
Teaching Tips

Differentiation

Scientist Notes
This video presents research work done by Amanda O'Lear, a Rutgers University graduate student on flood risk mapping using archival data from FEMA to determine the impact of flooding on historical infrastructure and the potential risk in future. The method adopted to re-classify the potential risk to show the most vulnerable sites to prioritize for intervention is suitable. Thus, this resource is insightful and recommended for teaching.
