The goal of this project is to develop an integrated modeling approach for quantifying the protective services that coastal vegetation may provide for tsunami-prone areas. An important component of this research effort is to understand how the effectiveness of the protective services provided by vegetation depends on the intensity of the coastal hazard, the biophysical characteristics of the ecosystem, and on the socio-economic structure and the adaptive capacity of the coastal community.
