The Nature Conservancy (TNC) is funding Dr. Webb to study Mobile Bay’s wave characteristics to facilitate preparation, planning, site selection, and design of their coastal projects in Alabama. Products of the study will include high-resolution estimates of seasonal and probabilistic wave characteristics along Alabama’s coastline; and tools for evaluating the performance of wave attenuating structures during storm events. The expected outcomes of the study include improved site selection, appropriate project design based on wave climate, and the ability to quantify wave height reduction as a function of the local wave climate, project design, and storm-induced water levels.
