The Sea Level Solutions Center in the FIU Institute of Environment is hosting the Workshop on Coastal Observation and Modeling Systems. This is an NSF-funded event in line with the "Coastlines and People (CoPe)" theme.

The workshop will take place on September 8, 2020 using a virtual conferencing platform. The one-day workshop will begin at 9AM EST.

The workshop is designed to discuss observations and models associated with biophysical, social-behavioral, and economic systems in vulnerable coastal regions. Specifically, the workshop will focus on understanding the interactions of biophysical, social-behavioral, and economic systems in coastal regions, explicitly defining new data gaps that can be addressed by nongovernmental, local, regional, and federal networks for the formulation of a comprehensive Coastal Observatory, and the development of interoperability requirements of data and models.
