Internship: Linking Irma storm signatures to the Holocene sediment...

Detailed Description

South Florida’s proximity to sea level makes Miami and the Everglades ecosystem vulnerable to storm surge.  Sediment cores document past rates of sea level rise, but past storm signatures are difficult to identify. Development of modern calibration datasets will provide information to interpret past storm records and help urban planners and resource managers prepare for the future.
