Union Beach, New Jersey: A Case Study for Coastal Resilience


This studio report serves as an overview of the Borough of Union Beach, New Jersey through the lens of transdisciplinary studies of coastal resilience. With this exercise, we were able to better understand the risks and vulnerabilities that a mainly residential coastal community faces. By studying the economic, social and demographic trends before and after extreme weather events, we were also able to analyze the proposed flood management projects and the redevelopment projects that the community expects to see completed in the near future.
