Dr. Shimon Wdowinski

Dr. Shimon Wdowinski is an associate professor at the Department of Earth and Environment at Florida International University. He received a B.Sc in Earth Sciences (1983) M.Sc. in Geology (1985) from the Hebrew University (Jerusalem, Israel) an MS in Engineering Sciences (1987), and PhD in Geophysics (1990) from Harvard University.  Before resuming a faculty position at Tel Aviv University in 1994, he conducted post-doctorate research at Scripps Institute of Oceanography, UCSD (1990-1993). He joined the University of Miami in 2001.

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.

"I received the FIRST Score assessment from Coastal Risk Consulting. The report presents very professionally and I am happy with the results. It does make me think about adding a 1-2 foot stem wall to any construction I may plan. Current guidelines do not dictate that, but 20-30 years from now it might affect resale. Thanks for introducing me to what you are doing!"
