Under a grant from the National Science Foundation, the University Cooperation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) is looking to better understand the research needs related to advancing understanding of the impacts of coastal environmental variability and natural hazards on populated coastal regions. This emerging effort about Coastlines and People is called CoPe.

The goal of this effort is to imagine Coastal Research Hubs, structured using a convergent science approach, at the nexus between coastal sustainability, human dimensions, and coastal processes to transform understanding of interactions among natural, human-built, and social systems in coastal populated environments. Research Hubs could address issues operating at multiple scales, link science, community involvement, broadening participation, and education into developing pathways to sustainability in changing coastal environments.

UCAR would like to engage the scientific community in the development of emerging research needs related to CoPe, through three regional and one virtual, concurrently-held scoping workshops on September 26-28, 2018.

The goals of the workshops are to identify the research needs and the optimal structure for research initiatives on Coastlines and People.

Applications are now closed.

This activity is supported by NSF Geosciences Directorate through award # 1844215.
