July 6, 2017
1:30pm - 3:00pm Eastern Time
Coastal hazards are a widespread challenge that cost millions
(and sometimes billions) of dollars in the U.S. every year due
to property loss, infrastructure damage, and spending on
mitigation measures. Reducing risk and responding to coastal
hazards is an ongoing challenge that relies on close coordination and cooperation between geoscientists, coastal planners, emergency managers, and communities at all levels.
This free AGI Critical Issues webinar will focus on efforts to
anticipate, mitigate, and respond to coastal storms, erosion,
and associated hazards at the federal, state, and local levels,
with a focus on how geoscience informs planning at all levels
and examples of coastal hazard planning from the Pacific, Gulf,
and Atlantic coasts.
Key topics to be addressed:
- Federal, state, and local coastal hazard mitigation efforts
- Lessons learned from recent major coastal storm and erosion events such as Hurricane Matthew and winter storms
during the 2015-16 El Niņo
- Communication and collaborations between communities
and agencies to improve community resilience
