The Cascadia CoPes Hub is made up of over 90 researchers, students, and postdoctoral students. Teams are led by several co-leads and are supported by a Coastal Community Lead, who is an affiliate of Washington or Oregon Sea Grant. Coastal community leads support their teams by making connecting our researchers with community members and regional partners.

Team 1: Studying and modeling the geohazards associated with earthquakes, tsunamis, and landslides to better understand their impacts on infrastructure and coastal communities.
Team 2: Understanding and predicting risks to coastal communities due to flooding, erosion and ecosystem change, and evaluating natural and nature-based solutions.
Team 3: Increase adaptive capacity of coastal communities to prepare, respond, and recover from chronic and acute hazards.
Team 4: Increase the diversity of future coastal hazard researchers and practitioners.
Team 5: Support community engagement and co-production of coastal hazards science.
