Dealing with climate impact
Author : J. WILLIAM KAMPHUIS(1)
ABSTRACT
This paper discusses the background of Climate Change (CC) research and how CC impacts Coastal/Fluvial
professionals. It notes that our professional interest is really in Climate Impact (CI), rather than CC, and that there is very
little good information on CI. The three main thrusts of the paper are: 1) How our education system needs to be changed
if it is to supply enough competent young professionals in the near future to deal with CI. 2) How to learn about CI,
through a highly focused and closely coordinated research program to collect and analyze data from recent incidents of
CI. 3) How Coastal/Fluvial professionals must work hard at a number of levels so that both the above needs will be
recognized and adequately met.
