Coastal systems around the United States are densely populated regions with rich ecosystem diversity and economic resources. Understanding the interaction between oceanic and hydroclimatic forcing over the coastal systems is of paramount importance, but still challenging, for hazard prediction, infrastructure resilience, and sustainable water resources management. In this presentation, we discuss the challenges we face in the appropriate characterization of extreme and non-extreme (e.g. nuisance flooding) coastal hazards. The advanced probabilistic tools useful for appropriate characterization of such hazards and dealing with the aforementioned difficulties will also be discussed.
