Paleotempestology of Coastal Georgia:  A Study of Spatial and Temporal Variability of Hurricane Activity along the Coast of Georgia


PI: Lawrence Kiage (Georgia State University)

Support: Georgia Sea Grant College Program

Timeframe: 2012-2013

Project Objectives:
This project will determine the balance of mechanisms that control the spatial and temporal variability of hurricane activities (frequency, intensity, tracks, and range) in the US Atlantic coast. This study will produce the first comprehensive paleotempestological record from coastal Georgia based on multiple proxies and multiple study sites (Cumberland, Little St. Simons, Wassaw, and St. Catherines Islands), and provide information on the return rate of intense hurricanes in coastal Georgia.
