Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama have formed the Northern Gulf Coastal Hazards Collaboratory(NG CHC), a consortium to leverage their partnerships, proximity, and prior investments to advance the science and engineering of coastal hazards across the tri-state region and to address issues of national importance; including coastal system response, risk management of coastal hazards, and the sustainability of economically important coastal fisheries, marine transportation, energy development and strategic national defense.  The challenges to promoting resilience of the Northern Gulf Coast region, including the urban, industrial, and natural landscape components, provide a unique laboratory for developing new technologies that reduce risk to both natural and built environments. The key to success is close collaboration among coastal scientists, coastal engineers, and computer scientists.
