Dr. Dean Kyne was invited to participate in the Coastline & People (CoPe) Scoping Workshop between September 26 and 28, 2018.


To identify priorities for a research initiative focused on coastal regions. More information is available on the CoPe scoping session website https://coastlinesandpeople.org/ Coasts are paramount to our nation’s economic prosperity, sustainability and national security. The National Science Foundation (NSF) Directorate of Geosciences in collaboration with the Directorates for Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences, Engineering, Education and Human Resources, and Biological Sciences are looking to better understand the research priorities related to advancing understanding of the impacts of coastal environmental variability and natural hazards on populated coastal regions. The outcomes from these scoping sessions will inform future research opportunities from NSF to expand and innovate coastal research and include state, federal and local stakeholders.  Interdisciplinary research on coastal processes, the built environment, and the people that inhabit coastal regions, serves as an opportunity to engage under-represented groups and build on broadening participation efforts of NSF’s INCLUDES.
