The Study of Barrier Islands – Past, Present, Future will be presented at the Island Theatre, 4074 Main Street, on Saturday, July 2 at 7pm.
Offered through a partnership between the Museum of Chincoteague Island and the Chincoteague Island Arts Organization
A program of vital interest to all, especially Chincoteague residents, who are concerned about the effect of climate change on our beloved barrier islands. Dr. Christopher Hein will describe the forces that originally formed barrier islands and how those same forces continually change them, how they came to exist as the unique environments and ecosystems we know today, and the probable impact of climate change on them. Dr. Hein is a coastal geologist and associate professor in the Department of Physical Science at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS), William & Mary, and leads the multi-institution Chincoteague Inlet Modeling Study, focused on the dynamics of, and best management practices for, Chincoteague Inlet and nearby barrier islands.
