The Mid-Atlantic Coastal Resilience Institute (MACRI), a newly formed organization located at the NASA Wallops Flight Facility, is a multi-disciplinary institution dedicated to integrated climate change research with the goal of helping local and regional leaders make coastal communities and habitats more resilient through scaled science and research informing public policy. MACRI partner organizations provide specific expertise in environmental monitoring and forecasting, modeling about coastal vulnerability and risk assessment, and moreover access to climate change space-based data. MACRI will be the platform to combine and leverage the capabilities of participating institutions to provide an unprecedented integration of science and its applications to understand, predict, and integrate resilience into local, state, and regional policy planning for both human and natural coastal communities. This seminar will provide an overview of MACRI and give examples of human and natural systems that are at risk from climate change.


Ms. Massey is the Assistant Director of Management Operations for NASA Goddard Space Flight Center's (GSFC) Wallops Flight Facility (WFF). She is responsible for the multifaceted institutional operations of WFF. Ms. Massey received undergraduate degrees in International Affairs and History from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, and she also earned a Master's degree in Public Administration from the University of Virginia. She is also a member of the Eastern Shore Community College Foundation Board and the NASA management point of contact for the Mid-Atlantic Coastal Resilience Institute (MACRI).
