Future Directions for Enabling Coastal Storm Flooding Prediction for High-Resolution Forecasts and Climate Scenarios

October 25, 2019 - October 26, 2019
Butler Library, 535 W. 114 St., New York, NY 10027 523 Butler Library
PLEASE NOTE: REGISTRATION HAS OFFICIALLY CLOSED. Coastal hazards related to strong storms are one of the most frequently recurring and wide spread hazards to coastal communities today and in the future. These flooding hazards include storm surge, wind-waves and extreme precipitation all of which are predicted to grow in danger with climate change impacts. The purpose of this workshop is to gather people from across the academic and government to discuss what future directions computational modeling of these hazards is going and should go to better enable protection of our coastlines under the current and future threat of climate change. Featured speakers include: Brian Blanton Director of Environmental Initiatives and Coastal Oceanographer Renaissance Computing Institute / University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Andrew Kennedy Professor, Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering & Earth Sciences, College of Engineering, University of Notre Dame Saeed Moghimi NOAA/UCAR Scientist, Coast Survey Development Lab, Office of Coast Survey, National Ocean Service, NOAA Don Resio Professor / Director, Taylor Engineering Research Institute, College of Computing, Engineering & Construction Workshop organizer: Kyle Mandli, Applied Physics & Applied Mathematics, Columbia University ______________________________ Registration: The registration fee is $25 and online registration closes on October 21.
