Alice Kelley, a geoarchaeologist in UMaine’s Climate Change Institute and Department of Earth and Climate Sciences, recently published an article in a special feature of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences in collaboration with several other researchers, as reported by UMaine News on April 16. Kelley’s article, “Coastal heritage, global climate change, public engagement, and citizen science,” analyzes how partnerships and citizen science efforts can improve management of coastal archaeological sites threatened by climate change.
