Laboratory for Coastal Research

The Laboratory for Coastal Research quantitatively assesses the vulnerability of storm surge flooding and coastal erosion induced by hurricanes and nor’easters utilizing advanced remote sensing technology, numerical simulation and field observation.  This Lab brings together the disciplines of geomorphology, oceanography, meteorology and remote sensing in basic and applied research concerning coastal environments.  Current interest areas include:

  • Numerical modeling of Surge Flooding
  • 3D Animation of Surge Inundation
  • Surge Sensor Network
  • Climate Change & Sea Level Rise Impacts
  • Inland Flooding Assessment
  • Airborne Laser Technology to Quantify Surface Roughness
