AbstractThe study area stretches from Wheatley in the southwest to Clearville in the northeast and includes Rondeau Bay. This stretch of Lake Erie shoreline is approximately 90 km in length. A first for the Canadian Great Lakes region, this study explores the influence of climate change on future coastal hazards due to changes in storms and ice cover and the associated challenges for the coastal communities of Chatham-Kent. The Municipality with the Lower Thames Valley Conservation Authority and researchers from Zuzek Inc. and the University of Waterloo are collaborating on the study. Our goal is to increase the resilience of the Chatham-Kent community through the development of short- and long-term solutions to the existing coastal hazards and associated challenges.
