How do we protect ourselves and our properties from storm surge and sea level rise? Last week we discussed the hard edge strategy of dikes, dams, gates and walls as barriers to the ocean. This week we continue our series with Soft Edges, offering examples of more flexible ways to absorb the oceans powerful force. Soft Edges is part 2 of a 7-part series dedicated to the ocean edge, exploring what takes place there, from the real to the symbolic.

'Tis the season for our end-of-year episode. Each year at the holidays, World Ocean Radio host Peter Neill reads At The Fishhouses, a poem by Elizabeth Bishop. This perennial favorite is chosen for its relevance for the New Year and because it distills years of Bishop's seaside meditations, evoking the meaning contained in personal encounters with the ocean.

This week on World Ocean Radio we introduce listeners to two women who are planning to embark on an unsupported exploration in the Arctic: 270 days at the Bamsebu trapper’s cabin in the high north. Hearts in the Ice is a citizen science initiative that Sunniva Sorby and Hilde Falun Strom will undertake in August 2019 as a means to create a global dialogue around the changes we are experiencing in the Polar regions that impact us all.

The Catalog of Life is an online database of the world's known species of animals, plants, fungi and micro-organisms. It holds the essential information on the names, relationships and distributions of over 1.8 million species worldwide. In this episode of World Ocean Radio we discuss the importance of such indices to help address the concerns of sustainability and biodiversity on our fast-changing planet. And we argue that, in addition to the collection of data, we must all put this knowledge to use for the future of the ocean and of all living things.

This week on World Ocean Radio we provide our annual observations on the Arctic Circle Conference in Reykjavik, Iceland. This year's report highlights not only on a seemingly insurgent presence by the Chinese but also a diminished presence by the United States, whose typically consequential interest in the Arctic was lacking. Also noticeably absent from the conversation: a perceived lack of representation by the Arctic's indigenous peoples. We'll discuss these things and more in this week's episode.
