Speaker: Peter Ruggiero, Professor with CEOAS at OSU and Director and Principal Investigator of The Cascadia Coastlines and Peoples Hazards Research Hub
How do Cascadia coastal communities increase their resilience to coastal hazards?
Pacific Northwest coastal communities are at risk from earthquakes, including “The Really Big One”, tsunamis, sea level rise, landslides, erosion, and increased precipitation. Stretching from Cape Mendocino, California through Oregon and Washington to Vancouver Island, Canada, these Cascadia communities are calling for “a coordinated research agenda among universities, governmental agencies, NGOs, and others” to help them achieve resilience to these coastal hazards. Join us to learn how the Cascadia Coastlines and Peoples Hazards Research Hub (Cascadia CoPes Hub) is responding directly to this call to increase coastal community adaptive capacity.
