Professeur adjoint, hydrodynamique côtière et fluviale, Institut national de la recherche scientifique (INRS)

Jacob Stolle est professeur adjoint en hydrodynamique côtière et fluviale à l'Institut national de la recherche scientifique Eau Terre Environnement. Il s'intéresse particulièrement à la résilience des communautés côtières et fluviales face aux inondations et à l'érosion. Les environnements côtiers et fluviaux remplissent une série de fonctions importantes, notamment la protection contre les inondations et la stabilisation des côtes. Ils ont également une valeur récréative, environnementale et économique. Avec le changement climatique et l'urbanisation, ces environnements sont de plus en plus menacés.

Le principal objectif de son programme de recherche est de comprendre les contraintes qui pèsent sur les environnements côtiers et fluviaux et la façon dont ces environnements fonctionnent suite aux interventions humaines destinées à protéger les communautés locales.

Jacob Stolle is an assistant professor in Coastal and Fluvial Hydrodynamics at the Institut national de la recherche scientifique Eau Terre Environnement. He is particularly interested in the resilience of coastal and riverside communities to flooding and erosion. Coastal and fluvial environments perform a range of important functions, including flood protection and coastal stabilization. They also have recreational, environmental, and economic value. With climate change and urbanization, these environments are increasingly threatened.

The main goal of his research program is to understand the constraints on coastal and fluvial environments and how these environments operate as a result of human interventions designed to protect local communities.
