Sheppard Medlin, who is pursuing his Master of Engineering at UGA, shared the work he is doing with Dr. Matt Bilskie on scaling natural infrastructure at the American Shore and Beach Preservation Association national conference.
Sheppards poster is available here.
The “scaling natural infrastructure” project is working to answer the following research questions: 1) Traditionally, what types of NI have been used to reduce coastal and riverine flooding? 2) What NI characteristics are important to reduce flooding for a range of flood magnitudes? 3) What non-local effects do NI have outside the immediate region? 4) How should NI be configured for optimal configuration, including hybrid solutions?
