NOAA's Gulf of Mexico Disaster Response Center (DRC) would like to announce the fall offering of the "NOAA's Science of Coastal Natural Hazards" Course on October 31-November 2, 2017 in Mobile, Alabama.
The goal of the course is to enhance understanding of the risks, physical processes, and NOAA products and services related to coastal natural disasters available to improve decision making and planning in the Southeast, Gulf, and Caribbean Regions. During the course, participants can expect to learn about physical processes associated with each disaster type, information and tools necessary to improve on the job decision making, and planning for coastal natural disasters and NOAA’s role during the evolution of a response from preparedness to response and long-term recovery. Additionally, the course provides a unique opportunity to network with other response professionals across various levels of government and industry. Registration for the class will open in August.
