Project: Modeling Sea Level Rise Inundation
Faculty: Michelle Oswald
Student: Christian Treat
DP&S Liaison: Janine Glathar
Date: Summer 2012
During Summer 2012, Prof. Michelle Oswald (Civil Engineering) and student Christian Treat ’13 (Animal Behavior) used GIS to model seal level rise inundation and identify vulnerable transportation infrastructure in the Philadelphia metropolitian area. Christian’s stipend for this summer research project was paid for out of Bucknell’s GIS student assistant fund.
Over the course of the 2012-13 academic year, Christian continued developing this research project as an independent study and co-authored a paper with Prof. Oswald in the Journal of Public Transportation.
