Dr. David Revell is a coastal geomorphologist with more than 25 years of experience studying marine, coastal, and estuarine processes, working to integrate science and management of coastal processes and climate change. He has served as a technical advisor and facilitator to multiple federal, state, and local jurisdictions related to ocean and coastal management especially at the intersection of how physical processes and human alterations affect hazards, habitats, and human use. He has been involved in a wide variety of contentious community stakeholder processes ranging from evaluating erosion hazard alternatives to climate change vulnerability impacts to lagoon and fisheries management, water quality, and marine spatial planning. Much of his work involves physical process research and spatial analysis to facilitate communication of science to inform decision-making. Dr. Revell currently advises multiple local jurisdictions and agencies on dune and sediment management, climate change, estuary processes, inlet management, and local coastal program updates.
