Research

    • Coastal Hazards Modeling (ADCIRC) – This modeling suite is the next generation of coastal hazard models for predicting coastal flooding. The models couple rain and wind forecasts with hydrologic, storm surge, and wave models to provide holistic coastal flooding predictions. (CHC-R)

 

    • Disaster Response Intelligent System (DRIS) – A GIS-based situational awareness system for regional and national disaster response and recovery that is scalable to the regional, state, county and local levels. DRIS integrates several tools including: Hurricane Storm Surge Model (SLOSH); Chemical Plume Model (ALOHA); At-Risk Population Model; WebEOC, Live Weather, Earthquake, Traffic Feeds; and Virtual USA Library Tool. (CHC-E)

 

    • In-Situ Evaluation of Scour Probe (ISEP) – Technology that allows in-field measurement of the scour potential of soil without having to excavate or send samples to a lab. This facilitates rapid assessment of the stability of hydraulic structures, including levees and bridges, after a disaster. (CHC-R)

 

    • MUNICIPAL- Post Disaster Infrastructure Decision Support Tool – A decision support tool that includes modeling capabilities, optimization software and GIS software. It allows users to visualize critical infrastructure systems and their interdependencies; visually assess the damage to these systems caused by an extreme event; and make mitigation, response, and recovery decisions that help ensure community resiliency. (CHC-R)

 

    • Hazard Mitigation Plan Quality Performance Indicators – Tool to evaluate the quality of hazard mitigation plans, consisting of a set of performance indicators and procedures for applying these indicators. (CHC-R)

 

    • Youth Coping Response Inventory (Y-CRI) – A psychometrically sound measure of psychological recovery in children and adolescents following coastal disasters. (CHC-R).
