About The Event
Boston Dance Theater invites Woods Hole Oceanographic Institutition scientist, Christopher Piecuch, on Zoom for its fourth installment of SURGE to discuss the uncommonly known factors associated with sea level rise along the New England coastline. Find out what’s really going on in our oceans backyard on October 14, 2020.
SURGE is an online event series that is designed to expand our dialogue with like-minded individuals whose work and interests straddle the realms of art+science and environmental sustainability. It is also our goal to raise awareness of / fundraise for the continuation of BDT’s Sea-Level Rise project. To make a tax-deductible gift please visit: https://bit.ly/31fWabO
Christopher Piecuch is an assistant scientist at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution who holds a B.A., M.S., and a Ph.D from the University of Rhode Island.
Piecuch, a physical oceanographer, is interested in the physics and statistics of coastal and regional sea level variability and change. His research makes combined use of instrumental observations, proxy records, numerical simulations, and theoretical models. Piecuch’s recent work focuses on understanding how regional sea level is related to large-scale ocean circulation as well as reconstructing the history of past coastal sea level change.
