Investigating Coastal Community Vulnerability Around the World

The following two pages include a look at coastal communities around the world and their relative vulnerability to coastal flooding, based on research. These materials are important to developing a context for the course and can also form a foundation for the Capstone Project. These pages include Learning Check Points designed to help enhance your understanding. These questions are asked for your benefit; you are encouraged to answer them, since they frequently introduce methods and applications that you will need to use again during graded assessments and in your Capstone. They are not for credit, but you need to take the time to do them as they are often required knowledge for other assessments.
