How are they making waves?
Catherine is conducting coastal erosion measurements across PEI for the ‘Living Shoreline’ project.
Catherine is installing pins along coastlines in PEI which are used to gauge the impact of coastal erosion.
Applications of innovation for future use
The pins Catherine installs will report back to members of the
Climatesense lab and give them data on what infrastructure in PEI is endangered, and how much the coastlines are eroding.
This data will go on to inform projects like the Living shoreline as well. These units of measurements have and can be used internationally as well, as many countries begin to start mitigating possible flooding.
