 Dr. Wdowinski research interests include the general 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.

Our management used Coastal Risk's innovative flood and storm models on our private residences. Understanding the value to us, personally, we are now integrating flood prediction modeling into our business processes. Additionally, the staff at Coastal Risk is very knowledgeable and responsive and will take the time needed to explain the model results and discuss cost-effective, adaptation options.
