Halifax to map coastline to predict global warming impact

As the evidence of the impact of global warming continues to mount, some places are taking the initiative to better understand local impacts and try to mitigate them. One example is Halifax, Nova Scotia, will is beginning a program to use LIDAR to map the coastline around Halifax Harbour, its drainage basin and the East Petpeswick peninsula. They hope that the results of the new survey will help local officials better predict what areas may be affected by the rise in sea level and other weather-related impacts of global warming in the coming decades.
