Abdelaziz, Ph.D., right, a professor in the Department of Civil Engineering at Stony Brook University, Stony Brook, N.Y., and Drew Strakey, a Wayne County Soil and Water Conservation District Technician and Program Specialist, Lyons, NY, are scouting potential locations for research that will test an innovation approach to managing shoreline erosion. With a $25,000 grant award by the Great Lakes Research Consortium (GLRC) in partnership with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation earlier this year, Abdelaziz will evaluate the use of marine-based, ecosystem-friendly biopolymers as a potential technique for increasing shoreline erosion resistance and protection. The work includes both laboratory experiments and field testing over multiple seasons with a site yet to be named in Wayne County. Photo: Wayne County SWCD
