Northeastern’s award-winning coastal research campus in Massachusetts faces public vote

The residents of Nahant, Mass. will vote this weekend on whether to seize part of the property where Northeastern’s Marine Science Center conducts vital, cutting-edge research to improve the sustainability of coastal communities facing the effects of climate change.

As coastal communities face increasingly complex threats, such as flooding due to storm surge and rising sea levels, deteriorating water quality, and over-fishing, the center has been an active partner in developing sustainable solutions.

Northeastern plans to expand the center, located at the tip of a small peninsula that juts into Massachusetts Bay, to provide researchers with state-of-the-art tools and facilities to enhance the impact of this critically important work.
