Research groups of Ning Lin (Civil and Environmental Engineering), Guy Nordenson (School of Architecture) and Michael Oppenheimer (Woodrow Wilson School) have developed new cross-disciplinary approaches to improve the resilience of New York and other coastal cities. The Princeton team recently published a 170-page report that details existing conditions, analyzes climate and sea-level trends, and proposes solutions to protect Jamaica Bay’s neighborhoods, infrastructure and ecology. A key element of the work is combining state-of-the-art hurricane hazards and climate projections with innovative designs to address practical questions that affect cities. The work is part of a larger effort in New York and beyond. Lin, Nordenson and Oppenheimer are longstanding members of the New York City Panel on Climate Change (NPCC), a group established by the city in 2008 that released its fourth major study in March 2019. By studying and applying solutions in New York, the Princeton team seeks to build a broader methodology for protecting coastal cities.
