These 83 papers from the February 2002 conference discuss coastal management, coastal storms, the impacts of climate change, shoreline change and response, and tsunamis and seismic events. The research focuses on identifying the forces and processes that contribute to coastal disasters, and developing strategies for preventing or minimizing the impact of these calamities. Among the topics are interpretation of probabilistic slope analysis for shoreline bluffs, coastal erosion processes and assessments of setback distances, and hurricane impact mapping. Case studies include a lakefront flood and storm emergency response plan for Chicago, a flood forecasting system for India, and property damage due to a storm surge in Japan.
