Today at 2 p.m.

TODAY at 2 p.m.
Sandwich Conservation Trust Annual Meeting
E. Sandwich Grange Hall, 91 Old County Rd., E. Sandwich

2:30 p.m.
Tom Stone will provide an educational and informative presentation on Storms, Sea Level Rise, and Erosion.

Tom Stone recently retired from the Woods Hole Research Center. He is an environmental geologist who has specialized in using remote-sensing technology to map vegetation and to determine rates of land use change. The results of this work assist in the determination of biotic contributions to the global climate change problem and provide information for land use planning. Before joining the Center, Mr. Stone held a research position in remote sensing at the Ecosystems Center of the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole.

This topic should be of particular interest to Cape Codders given the dramatic erosion problems of 2012. The program is open to the public for free, but the SCT will gratefully accept donations to help pay expenses.
