St. Petersburg, FL (Hilton St. Pete Bayfront)
This workshop convened coastal stakeholders across all sectors - academics, government, industry, NGOs - to understand our present capabilities for modeling storm processes, forecasting impacts, and determine/prioritize where advancements are needed. A subsequent call for proposals, resulted in $550,000 from the participating federal agencies to support graduate student research projects that focus on addressing challenges and topics identified in the meeting.
Participants are presently drafting a workshop report that will be released this winter.
