NOAA Scientist Dr. Brittany King Visits Savannah

On April 11-12, 2024, the CEAR Hub in Savannah welcomed Dr. Brittany King (pictured in the center), an Environmental Scientist from the National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). As the program manager for the CEAR Hub at NOAA, Dr. King oversees the execution of a grant sponsored by Senator Jon Ossoff, which aims to support coastal environmental and community resilience projects. Her visit included meetings with project team members from community groups and academic institutions including Georgia Tech, Savannah State University, Pin Point Betterment Association, and Harambee House, where she engaged in detailed discussions about ongoing local initiatives. 


During her time in Savannah, Dr. King also visited sites in Hudson Hill and Pin Point to gain a firsthand understanding of the impact and scope of the projects being undertaken in these communities. Her visit was educational as well, as she provided valuable guidance on how to effectively access and leverage NOAA’s extensive resources to further enhance project outcomes. Dr. King’s expertise in Environmental Justice greatly contributed to her insights, providing strategies to address the specific challenges of the communities served by the CEAR Hub.
