Given that the majority of the world’s population lives along the coast, sea level is rising, and hurricane intensity is expected to increase with global warming, it has become more important than ever to understand the mechanisms driving large-scale coastal behavior.
Our research focuses on the large-scale geologic and modern evolution of coastal environments with an emphasis on understanding the impacts of climate change on coastal systems. We use a combination of field and computational techniques to investigate:
