UC Irvine researchers recently received a $2.8 million award from the National Science Foundation as part of its Science, Engineering & Education for Sustainability initiative to address rising sea levels. The UC Irvine project, called Flood Resilient Infrastructure & Sustainable Environments, or Flood RISE, will build a broad knowledge base for flood resilience; articulate a strategy for more effectively translating climate science into actionable information to catalyze behavioral change; and advance understanding of whether, and to what extent, parcel-level flood data can contribute to more flood-resilient communities.
