2023 Dataset Awards — The DesignSafe Dataset Awards recognize outstanding datasets published in the Data Depot data repository. Multiple Dataset Awards are recognized annually and the selection committee considers datasets across the different types of data models (e.g., experimental, simulation, hybrid simulation, field research, other).

When Extreme Events Strike — A snapshot of work underway by NHERI teams during Hurricane Ian's landfall. When natural hazards strike, researchers around the NHERI network spring into action — eager to do what they do best: document extreme events and their damage with imagery and data — in hopes of preventing similar destruction in the future.


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.
