RELATED RESEARCH CENTERS AND FACILITIES
At Stevens, we embrace technology as a central part of our research, academics, culture, and campus. Our tech-driven research enterprise is home to these cross-disciplinary centers and state-of-the-art facilities focused on research related to urban and coastal resilience.
Davidson Laboratory is Stevens Institute of Technology's renowned marine research laboratory that uniquely integrates the fields of naval architecture, coastal and ocean engineering, physical oceanography, marine hydrodynamics and maritime systems to create a trans-disciplinary enterprise that can address both the highly specialized issues confronting each discipline, as well as the more complex, integrated issues facing natural systems and human-made maritime activities.
Stevens Flood Advisory System
The Stevens Flood Advisory System provides both real-time water level and forecasted water levels for 150 locations ranging from Delaware Bay north to Maine. For each location for provide present real-time water levels for observing stations (run by NOS, USGS and the PANYNJ), and forecasts water level and flooding for the ensuing four and half days. The water level and flood forecasts utilize the NYHOPS hydrological model and incorporate meteorological forecasts from the GFS, NAM, CMC and European models. SFAS allows user registration for email notification of impending flood forecasts for user-selected stations.
New York Harbor Observing and Prediction System
The New York Harbor Observing and Prediction System provides maritime hydrological forecasts for an area centered on the New York Harbor ranging from the Delaware bay to Cape Cod. It provides bother meteorological and hydrological forecasts for 72, in support of commercial and recreational users, and includes forecasts for data such as water current speed and direction, surface temperature, and water levels.
Resilience and Sustainability Research at Stevens
Stevens develops sustainable solutions for the future of the planet, including new materials, smarter power grids, better batteries and renewable energy sources. Davidson Laboratory is a national leader in resilience research, helping communities plan, prepare and face challenges such as extreme weather and climate change with leading-edge prediction systems and engineered defenses.
The educational experience in all of our more than 150 graduate programs is designed to imbue graduates with the mindset, skills, and abilities needed to stay relevant in a rapidly-evolving technological and professional landscape. The following programs prepare graduates for fields that develop and apply the latest technologies in urban and coastal resilience engineering and flood forecasting.
CLIMATE CHANGE: HURRICANE SANDY COST $8.1 BILLION
A Nature Communications paper, co-authored by Stevens researcher Philip Orton, quantifies the costs of losses attributed to climate change-related sea level rise, offering insights into the financial implications from Hurricane Sandy, and future storms
STEVENS IS HIRING
Join a growing research community where scholars, leaders, students, and partners meet, join forces, share ideas, and pursue progress. The Charles V. Schaefer, Jr. School of Engineering and Science offers a complete STEM package: engineering and science under one roof means new, unique opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration.
