USCRP has a role as a convening organization to bring together federal researchers, academics, and coastal managers to discuss societal needs and science gaps about specific topic areas. The workshops produce authoritative products & prioritized research needs, which inform our annual academic funding opportunities.
Stakeholders communicated problems associated with managing dynamic dune systems adjacent to coastal development.
Funding Awarded: over $260,000 in funding for graduate student research. Fact sheets for the research efforts are available below.
Authoritative Product: Workshop Report
Stakeholders discussed emergency managers needs as they compared to our fields' present capabilities for modeling storm processes and forecasting impacts to determine/prioritize where advancements were needed.
Funding Awarded: USCRP FY18 funded 9 projects with $550,000
