Blue Dunes: Climate Change by Design

Editor: Claire Weisz

Paperback

Price: $20.00

Overview

Blue 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.

Reviews
Highly detailed, interdisciplinary, and technically complex, Blue Dunes also manages to be a rather beautiful book. . . . But most important of all, it is a window into the types of engineering and scientific ingenuity, not to mention political and economic will, that will be necessary to guard against the effects of climate change.–Ray Bert "Civil Engineering "
