Virginia Sea Grant Graduate Research Fellows presented at the 2015 Virginia Sea Grant Project Participants’ Symposium. Unlike other talks they give about their research, we challenged them to tailor their talk for a general audience.

Stephanie Smallegan, a Virginia Tech PhD student, is studying the erosion of barrier islands during hurricanes. In her talk, she discusses the difference between breaching on developed and undeveloped islands.
