Purchase at Columbia University Press
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.
