Panel discussion to follow March 21 screening of sea level rise documentary 'Tidewater'

Community members are invited to join University of Delaware’s College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment at Main Street Movies 5 in Newark at 7 p.m., Wednesday, March 21, for a screening of the film Tidewater. Registration is required to attend this event. Use this form to reserve a space. Tidewater is a documentary focused on the issue of sea level rise in Hampton Roads, Virginia. The film highlights the issue of “nuisance flooding,” coastal flooding that occurs during higher-than-average tides and is a direct consequence of sea level rise and land subsidence.

A panel discussion and audience Q&A will follow the movie.

The panelists will include Danielle Swallow, a coastal hazards specialist with Delaware Sea Grant, Chris Sommerfield, a professor in UD’s School of Marine Science and Policy, and Judy Rolfe, an environmental photographer and filmmaker who worked as an assistant producer on the film.
