Project: Stakeholder/End User Engagement Support of Two CRC Projects
Other Research Participants/Partners: Joshua Behr, Old Dominion University; Michelle Covi, Old Dominion University; Jose Padilla, Old Dominion University; Wie Yusuf, Old Dominion University
Project Description: This project will support at least two Coastal Resilience Center projects, building on project team’s expertise in stakeholder engagement, leveraging information already collected from initial case studies, and utilizing existing connections to stakeholders and possible end users in Hampton Roads. Two projects that will be supported are: (1) Organizing a panel for the Maritime Risk Symposium that addresses “Integrating Maritime and Costal Resilience;” and (2) supporting stakeholder engagement and end user translation efforts of “The Incorporation of Rainfall into Hazard Estimates for Improved Coastal Resiliency” project. The project team will remain engaged with the CRC and can assist with communications efforts and help provide linkages between research or education projects and Hampton Roads resilience initiatives.
Research Interests: Causes of sea level rise and increased coastal flooding; climatology of coastal waters; offshore wind energy; radar measurements of surface currents
