How do we make Galway City climate resilient?

Oct 11 2019 Posted: 12:51 IST

Dr Eugene Farrell held fieldtrips this week at Grattan Beach in Galway City with second year students registered in the Earth Surface Processes and Landforms module. Students assessed if Grattan Beach fulfilled all the criteria for a  Blue Flag designation. These criteria include: Environmental Education & Information, Water Quality, Environmental Management, and Safety and Services. The students also investigated for visible pressures (climate and human) on the coastline. Each team of students had to design long term coastal management strategies for the area spanning the spectrum of resistance to adaptation. The fieldtrips were supported by Geography staff and postgraduate students.
