The book—edited by Karen M. O’Neill and Daniel J. Van Abs (CC’77), associate professors in the Department of Human Ecology at Rutgers—explores Sandy’s devastating impacts and the future of the coasts. Rutgers University and other experts examine the historic superstorm’s catastrophic impacts and shocking aftermath from numerous angles and try to decide whether Sandy was “a transformational event, just another storm or something in between.”
A free colloquium on Taking Chances: The Coast After Hurricane Sandy is scheduled for 1 to 4 p.m. on Oct. 28 at Rutgers. The colloquium, which is open to the public, will be held in Livingston Hall in the Livingston Student Center at 84 Joyce Kilmer Avenue in Piscataway.
