The 7th Conference on Coastal Atmospheric and Oceanic Prediction and Processes and the 7th Symposium on the Urban Environment both tackled meeting the challenges of coastal urban regions, which are a nexus for climate change effects, extreme weather impacts, chemical/biological threats, and air quality issues. The conference showcased discussions about such issues as coastal vulnerabilities, climate change, urban planning, advancing modeling capabilities, observing and forecasting in the urban-coastal zones, modeling for emergency response, dispersion, and air quality in urban-coastal areas. The conference also discussed issues regarding enabling technologies, such as multiscale modeling that includes a computational fluid dynamics building-resolving capability which holds promise for assessing and responding to specific threats to coastal cities.
