Natural Hazards Research Summit



The Natural Hazards Engineering Research Infrastructure (NHERI) is a distributed national facility that enables research discoveries that will protect human life, reduce damage, and minimize economic losses during natural hazard events.



5 Year Science Plan

A roadmap for researchers in related disciplines working together to achieve common goals.

Analyze, Simulate & Share

The Workspace gives researchers the power to share and publish data, access tools for data analysis and visualization, and run simulations on state-of-the-art supercomputer resources.

Start Your Experiments

The NHERI Facilities offer access to shared-use experimental laboratories, field equipment, simulation tools, and a network of social science, engineering, and interdisciplinary researchers.

Expand Your Skills

The Learning Center offers training webinars from all NHERI components, as well as resources for students, post-docs, and early career researchers.
