Blue Dunes: Climate Change by Design

Blue Dunes coverBlue Dunes chronicles the design of artificial barrier islands developed to protect the Mid-Atlantic region of North America in the face of climate change. It narrates the complex, and sometimes contradictory, research agenda of an unlikely team of analysts, architects, ecologists, engineers, physicists, and planners addressing extreme weather and sea level rise within the practical limitations of science, politics, and economics.
