Experience the cutting-edge research being undertaken by UCF Coastal, a bold new research center comprising a stellar group of core interdisciplinary faculty.

These researchers are exploring the myriad issues impacting our coastal communities to ensure the sustainability and resiliency of our coastlines and economy for generations to come.

Through a combination of animation and modeling as well as other materials, research faculty Sergio Alvarez (Economic Impact of Red Tide), Chris Emrich (Disaster Response Planning), Kristy Lewis (Estuarine Ecology) and Thomas Wahl (Vulnerability of Coastal Communities) will showcase the vulnerabilities of coastal communities and ecosystems under climate change conditions and give you a glimpse of how UCF is developing new innovative tools to find solutions to the coastal issues plaguing our state.
