Monitoring and Observations
Dr. Boyd and his colleagues will adapt an existing computer model for assessing the suitability of a site for construction of a living shoreline and apply the model to the Perdido Bay/Wolf Bay/Ono Island complex in coastal Alabama, Lake Pontchartrain and Galveston Bay and develop an interactive decision support tool that allows for a rapid assessment of a site.
