Skidaway Institute of Oceanography scientist Clark Alexander will present a program on threats to the Georgia Coast in an “Evening @ Skidaway” reception and lecture Tuesday, May 21, on the campus of Skidaway Institute, 10 Ocean Science Circle in Savannah.
The program will begin at 6:15 p.m. with a reception at the University of Georgia MAREX Aquarium, followed by the science talk at 7:15 p.m. in the McGowan Library Auditorium.

Alexander’s talk is titled, “Coastal Crystal Ball: A Look at the Future of Georgia’s Changing Coastline.” Alexander will discuss coastal hazards relevant to Georgia, such as storms, beach erosion and sea-level rise. He will introduce the Georgia Coastal Hazards Portal, a web-based tool that anyone can use to assess their specific exposure to coastal hazards and present up-to-the-minute results of ongoing research to better quantify coastal Georgia’s hazard vulnerability.
The reception will include a demonstration of the Georgia Coastal Hazards Portal display at the aquarium.
