The world’s river basins and coastal cities are directly influenced by the people who live, work, and play on the water and in the surrounding landscapes. This session will feature brief presentations by BU faculty whose research focuses on some aspect of the interactions between people and waterways and coastal cities in various geographies. From the Amazon Basin to Southeast Asia and Indonesia to coastal New England, BU researchers are working to better understand the important, intrinsic connections and mutual influences between humans and inland waterways and urban areas on the coast. Join the BU Office of Research for a Research on Tap event, titled "Coastal Cities, People, and Waterways," hosted by Anthony Janetos, Director of the Frederick S. Pardee Center for the Study of the Longer-Range Future, and Professor and Chair of the Department of Earth & Environment. The event will take place on Monday, February 4, 2019 from 4 to 6 pm at the Photonics Colloquium Room, 9th Floor, 8 St. Mary’s Street.
