CLIVE demonstration in Charlottetown

  • Place : Beaconsfield Carriage House
  • Time : 19:00
  • Contact : Dave Atkinson, datkinson@upei.ca
  • Details : Dr. Adam Fenech, director of UPEI’s Climate Research Lab, is touring Prince Edward Island communities this July to give demonstrations of the CoastaL Impacts Visualization Environment tool, better known as CLIVE. Dr. Fenech will lead discussions about coastal erosion and sea-level rise, and the risk to homes, cottages, roads, and communities. See CLIVE at the Beaconsfield Carriage House at 7 pm, Wednesday, July 23. CLIVE allows users to manipulate a 3-D map of Prince Edward Island with a video game controller. It simulates erosion and sea-level rise over the next 90 years, and shows their impact on Prince Edward Island infrastructure. Attendees will be encouraged to share ideas about how we might best adapt to these conditions, and through CLIVE, view local areas that may be affected. The session begins at 7 pm and will run for approximately one hour. Drinks and light snacks will be provided. The events are sponsored by the PEI Department of Environment, Labour, and Justice, and by the Climate Research Lab at the University of Prince Edward Island.
