The CaPE Lab –  Coastal Processes and Ecosystems Laboratory

The Coastal Processes and Ecosystems Laboratory (CaPE Lab) is a joint research effort Directed by Dr. Mark Borrelli between the School for the Environment(SFE) within the University of Massachusetts Boston (UMass Boston) and the Center for Coastal Studies in Provincetown, Massachusetts.

The CaPE Lab is made up of scientists, technicians, engineers, graduate and undergraduate students interested in better understanding the links between physical processes and coastal ecosystems, particularly within a regime of climate change, sea level rise and increasing anthropogenic pressures.

The Lab is focused primarily on applied research with societal implications but also conducts basic research in the fields of sediment transport, coastal evolution, benthic ecology, as well as other phenomena and features at the marine/terrestrial interface.
