About the Workshop

The workshop will convene experts from wind/coastal engineering, atmospheric science, oceanography, ecology, emergency management, and crisis communications to foster collaboration across field and laboratory research directed at reducing hurricane impacts to the built and natural environment, with the goal of exposing them to how the NSF NHERI program can amplify their research efforts. Participants will explore how field research planned for the upcoming Atlantic hurricane seasons can (a) inform the design, execution, and validation of laboratory experiments at NHERI experimental facilities (EF) and (b) benefit from NHERI community activities and tools to coordinate and document field experiments. Operational interests in engineering, meteorology, coastal management, emergency management, disaster response, and crisis communication will also attend to help PIs broaden the impact of their work.

Workshop Goals

  • Share scientific objectives for field research planned for upcoming Atlantic hurricane seasons and identify how they fit within the NHERI Science Plan
  • Launch the SHORELINE (SHared Operational REsearch Logistics In the Nearshore Environment) directory to optimize field coordination
  • Strengthen/bridge/unify field and laboratory research efforts through increased involvement with the NSF NHERI community
  • Identify critical needs of state, federal, and non-profit partners to inform research designs, both in the field and lab.

Agenda and Workshop Information

Workshop Registration

This event is ideal for PhD students, post-docs, new faculty, faculty that work outside of the associated core disciplines, or anyone else who is “new” to working with the research community that studies impacts from extreme wind events.
