dc.description.abstractRecent projections of sea level rise indicate that global mean sea levels could rise up to 2.0 meters (6.6 feet) by the end of this century. Coastal communities need to respond with innovative design strategies to adapt to uncertain changes in water levels and precipitation. This research-design thesis identifies green infrastructure as an adaptable design strategy that could enhance the resilience of coastal communities to adapt to sea level rise and increased flooding risk. This thesis suggests green infrastructure to attain these objectives, yet realizes limitations to its application in coastal protection. Green infrastructure is applied in a site design that specifically addresses sea level rise on the extant Brunswick-Altamaha Canal in Glynn County, GA.
