iCoast- a Multidisciplinary Approach to Creating Resilient Coastal Communities

The Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering, in collaboration with several other colleges, is piloting a project that could serve as a model for collecting and analyzing data from real-time monitoring of coastlines globally using the living laboratory of Florida’s own 8,436 miles of coastline.

Using advanced sensors, including new technology in development at UF, the multidisciplinary team will develop a platform for widespread, real-time, multi-scale monitoring to map and predict environmental and human health threats along the coast. University of Florida innovators Christine Angelini, Ph.D., David Kaplan, Ph.D., and Peter Ifju, Ph.D., are among seven UF engineering experts of a group of 14 faculty involved in this project.
