Growing Islands – Rebuilding Coastlines through Wave Energy
What if we could harness the power of the ocean to grow islands, rebuild beaches and protect coastal communities from sea level rise?
MIT’s Self Assembly Lab and Invena, an organization based out of the Maldives, are working together to create a system of underwater structures that use wave energy to promote sand accumulation in strategic locations. Over time, the goal is that the self-organization of sand will grow into new islands or help rebuild coastlines, creating an adaptable solution to protect coastal communities from rising sea levels.
