Provide planning, analysis, design, monitoring, and measurement of coastal processes, coastal structures, and coastal habitats, and consultation and advice as required on coastal engineering issues of concern. Following Hurricane Ivan, the first task was to design, permit, and manage construction of a FEMA-funded emergency protective berm on Perdido Key. EOE conducted a re-analysis of the storm surge return period statistics for Perdido Key including Hurricane Ivan, which resulted in a significantly larger project than FEMA had originally authorized based on pre-Ivan return periods.
