FloodRISE is a UC Irvine-led research project to promote resilience to coastal flooding in Southern California. The project uses advanced computer models to map flooding hazards on a house by house basis, and flood risk information is made accessible to residents, businesses and civic leaders through innovative communication strategies. The goal is to enhance flood risk planning and policies and to promote cost effective interventions. Research takes place in the lowlands surrounding the largest estuaries in Southern California: Tijuana River and Newport Bay. This place-based investment in Southern California coastal communities is supported by the National Science Foundation.
