Florida Center for Environmental Studies
The Florida Center for Environmental Studies (CES) is a state university research center established in 1994, working in the broad field of the management of tropical and subtropical freshwater, estuarine and coastal ecosystems and in related information technology worldwide. At the request of the Florida Department of Transportation, the Center is currently developing a methodology for the assessment and mitigation of sea level rise impacts on Florida's transportation modes and infrastructure. The main tasks of the project include an inventory of research and studies analyzing projected sea level rise in Florida, comprehensive listings of infrastructures that are vulnerable to sea level rise, and policy recommendations for improving transportation infrastructures resiliency and adaptation to climate change. The Center is also involved in the cross-university 'Innovative Collaboration on Climate and Energy' program (see separate entry). Other related climate change adaptation publications, news, and events pertaining to Florida are posted on the Center's site.
