Local Communities: Tools, Models and Techniques to Improve Natural and Community Resilience Through the Great Lakes Coastal Storms Program

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

New resources are available, through the NOAA Coastal Storms Program (CSP), that aid in improving natural and community resilience to storm impacts.  CSP has focused on improving hazard resilience and reducing loss of life and negative impacts on coastal property and the environment from coastal storms in the Great Lakes region since 2012. These new resources, tools and techniques improve Great Lakes weather observations, shoreline prediction, municipal codes for green infrastructure, and understanding of stormwater and contaminant impacts.

Graduate Student, School of Environment and Natural Resources, Ohio State University
Hello, I am a second-year PhD student in The Ohio State University School of Environment and Natural Resources (adviser Dr. Eric Toman). My research interests are the social and psychological drivers of climate resilience and hazard mitigation decisions. I have several project ideas in this area and am excited to speak with others about implementing them!
