Abstract

Structures of Coastal Resilience (SCR) is a multi-university collaborative developing adaptive design strategies at four coastal bays along the east coast, complementing the United States Army Corps of Engineers’ North Atlantic Coast Comprehensive Study (NACCS), released in January 2015. The Corps was tasked by Congress in January 2013 to conduct this $19.5 million two year comprehensive study of the areas affected by Hurricane Sandy, evaluating flood risks and identifying areas in need of additional analysis. SCR seeks to inform the work of the Comprehensive Study through a focused look at social, environmental, and infrastructural vulnerabilities at four communities within the USACE study zone.
