In July 2002, as an invited speaker to a class of Massachusetts public school teachers enrolled in a two-week summer course, Jeff Williams (Woods Hole Field Center) spoke at the Waquoit Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve on Cape Cod. In addition to the teachers, staff from the reserve also attended the presentation.

The talk focused on coastal processes, hazards associated with developed coasts, the science behind climate-change predictions, likely effects of future sea-level rise, and the options available for dealing with coastal erosion. A lively period of discussion followed the lecture.
