Coastal Resilience in the Face of Sea Level Rise and Stronger Storms

coastal-resilienceThis presentation focusing on the greater Newport Harbor community is by principal scientists directing a $3 million National Science Foundation grant for a project known as FloodRISE. The project will provide scientific foundations for planning coastal resilience in the changing coastal environment caused by  sea level rise and stronger storms.

Presenters (click on their names for their bios):

Brett Sanders, Chair, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, UC Irvine

David L. Feldman, Director, Water UCI, and Department of Planning, Policy and Design, UC Irvine

FloodRISE is a UC Irvine-led research project to promote resilience to coastal flooding in Southern California. The project uses advanced computer models to map flooding hazards on a house by house basis, and flood risk information is made accessible to residents, businesses and civic leaders through innovative communication strategies. The goal is to enhance flood risk planning and policies and to promote cost effective interventions. Research takes place in the lowlands surrounding the largest estuaries in Southern California: Tijuana River and Newport Bay. This place-based investment in Southern California coastal communities is supported by the National Science Foundation. Learn more at floodrise.uci.edu
