Multi-disciplinary research to address climate change and sea-level rise using nature-based solutions

The Head Research Group is working on this multi-disciplinary project funded by the Army Corps of Engineers (DEEDS) to better understand the effects of flooding due to storm surge and sea-level rise on roadways and bridges within evacuation routes, and to what extent does increased salinity degrade structural materials to inform maintenance predictions. We have installed sensor arrays in the field to monitor relative water depths and salinity levels to collect preliminary data and formulate baseline measurements before a nature-based installation occurs in Delaware.
