New modeling framework aims to enhance exploration of coastal risks

The Coastal Integrated Hydro-terrestrial Modeling (C-IHTM) workstream of USGCRP’s Coasts Interagency Group is engaging agency principal investigators in the development of a new framework for scenario discovery and model- and data-driven stress-testing. This framework is being developed primarily by principal investigators under the direction and guidance of the C-IHTM workstream, the IGIM, and the Interagency Integrated Water Cycle Group. The framework will be designed to allow for combining models at different spatial scales and purposes to address a wide range of topics. The status of the work was presented at the American Geophysical Union annual meeting in late 2022.
