CP44H:
Coastal Research Related to Hurricane Dorian and the 2019 Hurricane Season I Posters

Session ID#: 93234

Session Description:
Hurricane Dorian, which was the first major hurricane (and fourth named storm) of the 2019 Atlantic storm season, had a major impact throughout the Bahamas and along the East Coast. It made landfall in the Abaco islands as a Category 5 on 1 September 2019  with maximum sustained winds of 295 km/hr and pressure of 911 mb, tying for the highest winds at landfall for an Atlantic hurricane. In the Bahamas, catastrophic damage from winds, rain, and storm surge resulted in more than 50 deaths and more than 1300 people may be missing.  The hurricane skated along the East Coast leading to evacuation orders throughout Florida and the Carolinas. Severe flooding and breaches occurred on the barrier islands of North Carolina between Cape Hatteras and Cape Lookout as the storm made landfall as a Category 1 on 6 September 2019.  Dorian even battered the coast of Nova Scotia with hurricane force winds as an extratropical cyclone on 8 September. This session seeks contributions focusing on the coastal impact and processes associated with Dorian and other storms from the 2019 hurricane season, including oceanographic, atmospheric, geomorphologic, hydrologic, ecologic, and climatic factors; data collection methods and assimilation techniques; remote sensing; impacts on the coastal physical environment and human health; and policy implications.  Submissions are welcomed that may be observational or modeling in nature.
