Scientists counter threat of flooding on coral reef coasts
Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Jose, and Maria became household names this fall as they tore a path of destruction through the Caribbean and southern United States. The waves generated by such hurricanes or cyclones can have devastating effects on low-lying tropical coasts fronted by coral reefs. Scientists have developed a tool called “BEWARE”: Bayesian Estimator of Wave Attack in Reef Environments for predicting flooding caused by waves on coral reef-lined coasts…More
