Tidewater addresses a serious problem that CEOE faculty are studying and Delaware Sea Grant is working to help communities confront: sea level rise. The film examines the issue in Hampton Roads, Virginia, an area here in the hard-hit Mid-Atlantic region and home to 14 military installations, including the world's largest naval base. By considering how local residents, officials and the U.S. military are responding to the threat of sea level rise, the film aims to start a discussion about what a successful plan for adaptation might look like.

After the 42-minute film, audience members will have the opportunity to have questions answered by Coastal Hazards/Climate Resiliency Specialist Danielle Swallow of Delaware Sea Grant, geological oceanographer Chris Sommerfield of the School of Marine Science and Policy, and Judy Rolfe, an environmental photographer and filmmakerwho worked as an assistant producer on the film.

Tidewater is the final film of the 2018 Lights, Camera, Earth film series.
