Description: The USGS is offering a funding opportunity to a CESU partner for research on the influence of geomorphic change on coastal flood hazards. The primary Research Objectives covered by this agreement include: (1) regional assessments of the historical rates of coastal vertical land motion using the latest in situ and remote sensing data, (2) incorporation of those rates into future coastal flooding assessments, (3) developing research approaches for incorporating natural system evolution (e.g., beach and barrier island systems) into future coastal flood hazard assessments and coastal resilience strategies, (4) writing reports and papers to peer-reviewed journals about the integration of geomorphic change into coastal flood modeling systems, applications, and results, and (5) attending meetings with the USGS coastal hazards team to discuss strategies for future work, resolve issues, and assist with the publication and dissemination of results.
