Welcome to the virtual booth for NSF-funded NHERI, the NATURAL HAZARDS ENGINEERING RESEARCH INFRASTRUCTURE
We are a 12-node research network composed of:
Our collective mission: Mitigate natural and infrastructure damage from
natural hazards — including hurricanes, storm surge tsunamis, earthquakes and landslides.
NHERI provides more than just time in experimental facilities. The program creates many resources for the natural hazards research community, including these highlights:
Attending in person? Visit our booth (#545) on the exhibit floor to hear all about NHERI from Facility Schedulling and Operations Coordinator, Dan Zehner, and speak to representatives from the NHERI RAPID and OH Hinsdale Wave Research Laboratory facilities:
Joseph Wartman, director of the NHERI RAPID program based at the University of Washington, will be available to discuss how RAPID helps the NHERI community perform reconnaissance and collect valuable data in the field.
Interested students can apply to the newly announced RAPID Graduate Scholars program.
Pedro Lomonaco, director of the OH Hinsdale Wave Research Laboratory at Oregon State University, will be available to discuss NHERI projects and the capabilities at his facility.
