Ware catches a wave with Atlantic Rising

Ware Academy has been chosen as one of 30 stops along the Atlantic coast for the international research group Atlantic Rising, which is a small group of anthropological scientists on a 32,000-mile journey circumnavigating the Atlantic seaboard along the 1M contour line. The 1M line is the level scientists predict sea levels may reach in the next 100 years.

Along the way the team is creating an educational network exchange for 15,000 students in low-lying coastal communities throughout the world.  Through their photography, films, and writing, the Atlantic Rising group is documenting the land mass which will be lost if the current sea level rise predictions come true.

While in Gloucester, the research team will host several informational sessions for the students of Ware Academy including two live web discussions with students from Scotland and Ghana.
During the four-day stopover at the school, the group will spend time with friends of Ware Academy and researchers from the Virginia Institute of Marine Science.

Ware Academy is hosting an open forum for the community to welcome these English research scientists to Gloucester on Monday, October 25, at 6:30 p.m. If interested in attending this event, contact Ginger James at 693-3825 or to reserve a seat.
