Latest from World Ocean Radio: Soft Edges

In a continuation of last week's episode, "Hard Edges," host Peter Neill argues that the hard edge has failed us, evidenced by storms that overwhelm barriers and destroy coastal structures. In this episode he will give examples of some of the slowly emerging examples of soft edge engineering and will ask, "How can we turn the new circumstances brought on by sea level rise to our advantage?"

Listen to the episode here and you can listen to previous episodes here. World Ocean Radio, a project of the W2O, is a weekly series of five-minute audio essays. Peter Neill, Director of the World Ocean Observatory (W2O) and host of World Ocean Radio, provides coverage of a broad spectrum of ocean issues from science and education to advocacy and exemplary projects.
