Reflect on the different perspectives offered, compared to our zone walk and answer the following:
– Compared to what you saw when walking, what can you see and sense from the boat?
It’s quit dirty, as speaker said, the water is 75% water and 25% solids that are mostly human scabs and trashes.
– What areas appear to be vulnerable to coastal flooding?
Brooklyn shores, underground transportation, battery park and south Manhattan.
– Are any effects of Hurricane Sandy visible?
Battery parks seem are building public parks to provide buffer zones.
– Are you able to determine which areas of the coast are built on landfill? If so, what clues made this possible?
I think the only reason why I can determine which areas are built on landfill is because there is no marshes.
– Do you see sea walls, reinforcements, marsh areas?
However I did not see any marsh areas, but I do know that they are trying to build u shape Seawalls in the future
– What kind of systems do you see interacting (people, water, boats, etc)?
Factory, poop waters and open parks.
– Does New York seem prepared for the next storm?
As the lecturer said, that New York did a good job preparing for sandy, therefore there will be more preparation for the future. The sea walls will be designed as U shape to make building from flood free.
