Coastal and Marine Geospatial Sciences

 

The Coastal & Marine Geospatial Lab seeks a better understanding of the dynamic links between geomorphology, sediments, hydrology, climate, and biology that create the various environments of coastal zones. Researchers apply remote sensing, ground studies, and geographic information systems to build time series of environmental conditions. These time series, combined with data on processes such as sea-level rise, storms, and human activities, are our chief tools for developing process-response models of geoenvironmental change. Maps and model results are used to help develop and apply environmental policy.
