Dynamics of Extreme Events, People, and Places (DEEPP)

The DEEPP Project brings together social and environmental scientists and engineers. Our broad goal is to understand the environmental, economic, social, and psychological impacts of hurricanes and flooding in coastal Carolina communities. We combine survey data with satellite imaging, flood mapping, and storm surge mapping in order to provide communities, planners, and policymakers with information they can use in preparing for and recovering from these disasters. We hope our work will help North Carolinians and other residents of flood-prone areas in the United States.

DEEPP is made possible through a Creativity Hub grant from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a Growing Convergence Research Award from the National Science Foundation, under award number GCR 2021086.
