Welcome to the CFL website! Coastal Flood Lab (CFL) is dedicated to understanding and accurately predicting coastal hazards. A mix of high resolution numerical modeling and extensive field observations are used to investigate fundamental flooding physics, advance coastal process knowledge and quantitatively evaluate model performance. Current CFL research focus areas include compound (hydrologic-marine) flooding in urbanized backshores, living shorelines and manmade dunes, beach evolution, swash-beach ground water dynamics, beach management impacts, and characterizing model and measurement uncertainties. We value and celebrate diversity. Our students, postdocs, and PI are and are actively engaged in inclusion and outreach efforts.
