UD hosts coastal flooding workshop

Oct. 7, 2015--More than 40 experts representing state and federal agencies and regional universities gathered to discuss coastal flooding and other important issues during the Coastal Flood Research, Modeling and Monitoring Workshop on Sept. 16.

Sea-level rise, dissipating dunes and susceptibility to storm surges are a few of the factors that contribute to a vulnerable coast. A coast at risk means an increased potential for damage to coastal communities and ecosystems in the event of tropical systems, nor'easters or other damaging weather.

The workshop, held at the University of Delaware’s John M. Clayton Hall, was co-hosted by the University of Delaware, Delaware Sea Grant and the Mid-Atlantic Coastal Resilience Institute.
