Correlation Between Hurricane Sandy Damages Along NJ Coast with Land Use, Demographic and Other Local Characteristics

The goal of this study is to understand the correlation between Hurricane Sandy damages along NJ Coast with land use, demographic and other local characteristics and evaluate whether modifying or adding additional sea wall and sand dune infrastructure would have reduced the surge related damages that occurred from Sandy, and how their effectiveness compared to each other given location and community characteristics to assist "Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Flood Mitigation Research & Modeling" Project of Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy. The study will try to evaluate the effectiveness of these mitigation/resiliency strategies in reducing surge flooding, including the movement of huge quantities of sand from beaches, and related damages that occurred considerable distances from the ocean front.
