We developed the Advanced Circulation (ADCIRC) model to help planners predict what was once unpredictable. Our projects related to this are changing the way that our nation responds to the most dangerous storms.
We combine social sciences with empirical data to help coastal disaster zones achieve better outcomes across the board. Our Plan Integration for Resilience Scorecard (PIRS) is the capstone of this research.
We partner with Minority-Serving Institutions (MSIs) to promote disaster management career tracks while training the next generation of coastal engineers. Our major degree programs are state-of-the-art.
