Dr. Wdowinski's research interests include the areas of natural hazards, tectonics, wetland hydrology, climate change, and sea level rise. His work has focused on the development and usage of space geodetic techniques, mainly GPS and InSAR, that can detect very precisely small movements of the Earth’s surface. He successfully applied these technologies to study tectonic plate motion, earthquakes, land subsidence, sinkholes and environmental phenomena such as climate change, sea level rise, and wetland surface flow.

"After Hurricane Sandy, I was really worried about my property on Long Beach Island, NJ. Despite the immense pleasure our family derives from the house, thoughts of constant flooding and aggravation forced me to consider selling the property. Thanks to the assessment by Coastal Risk Consulting, I was reassured that our property sits on high ground and is at relatively low risk of flooding over the next two decades. The CRC report provided me with the peace of mind I needed to continue to enjoy and invest in our house. I will definitely recommend CRC to my friends and neighbors. Thanks again for providing the report."
