Location:   Florida, Statewide

Key Project Elements:

  • High Frequency Storm Erosion Modeling and Vulnerability Assessments – 15YR and 25YR return period storm erosion studies in support of coastal armoring and shoreline development projects in accordance with Rules 62B-33, FAC and 62B-56, FAC
  • Low Frequency Storm Erosion Modeling and Structural Design Basis Development – 100YR return period storm erosion studies in support of coastal development projects in accordance with Rule 62B-33, FAC
  • Structural Design basis for use by the Structural Engineer to include wave load and scour analysis (vertical columns, piles, etc.) as well as determination of the 100YR wave crest elevations corresponding to the establishment of Finished First Floor Elevations (FFE)
  • Linear Regression Analysis to establish historic and recent shoreline recession rates
  • Establishment of the health of dune systems and the level of protection they afford to upland properties
