Visit NHERI Booth at 2021 AGU Fall Meeting

 

West Lafayette, IN, Dec. 10, 2021 — Faculty and staff from the NSF-funded Natural Hazards Engineering Research Infrastructure (NHERI) will be on hand during the AGU Fall Meeting in New Orleans, Dec. 13-17.

At the NHERI booth, AGU attendees will find details about NHERI’s network of experimental facilities and resources, and they’ll have the opportunity to chat with NHERI faculty from the University of Washington-based Natural Hazard and Disaster Reconnaissance (RAPID) facility and the Oregon State University large wave laboratory.

In the AGU exhibit hall, find us in booth #545, next door to the USGS booth.

NHERI booth highlights include:

  • A scale-model wave tank, complete with miniature structures to test
  • A scale-model wind tunnel
  • A desktop-sized shake table
  • Video depicting data collected in the New Orleans region following Hurricane Ida (September 2021)

During the weeklong conference, the NHERI booth will be live-streaming interviews with natural hazards experts and demonstrating how NHERI facilities are making our natural and built environments more resilient.

Are you or your team presenting at AGU? Drop us a line to let us know!

About the Natural Hazards Engineering Research Infrastructure, NHERI

Funded by the National Science Foundation, NHERI is a network of experimental facilities dedicated to reducing damage and loss-of-life due to natural hazards such as earthquakes, landslides, windstorms, tsunamis and storm surge. Supported by the DesignSafe Cyberinfrastructure, NHERI provides the natural hazards engineering and social science communities with the state-of-the-art resources needed to meet the research challenges of the 21st century. NHERI is supported by multiple awards from NSF, including the Network Coordination Office, Award #2129782.
