Study to examine rising sea level's impact on estuaries, coastal communities
Date:8/12/2010

acts adjacent landscapes and estuaries, Hagen and his colleagues have developed tidal models during the last 15 years for the entire east coast of the United States, the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea.

Their work includes detailed computer modeling of much of the Florida Panhandle region. Hagen led a series of studies on coastal storm surge for the Northwest Florida Water Management District and the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Hagen will partner with several other experts, including UCF biology professors John Weishampel, a landscape ecologist who specializes in remote sensing, and Linda Walters, a marine biologist who specializes in oyster habitats. The team will develop models of where the rising water will eventually settle and its potential impacts on these economically and ecologically important estuarine systems.

Civil & Environmental Engineering professors George Yeh and Dingbao Wang will assist with the development of those models and also model water flow and sediment transport over inland areas.

The researchers will be working closely with coastal managers in the areas most affected by the oil spill and will be able to integrate data that will be useful to ongoing recovery efforts.

In addition to UCF and NOAA, researchers from the University of South Carolina, Florida State University and the University of Florida are contributing to the project. Other partners include the Northwest Florida Water Management District and Dewberry Inc.
