2021 Workshop on Shared Operational Research Logistics in the Nearshore Environment

Monday, April 26, 2021 12am PDT to Tuesday, April 27, 2021 12am PDT

The SHORELINE21 (Shared Operational Research Logistics in the Nearshore Environment) 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 National Science Foundation (NSF) Natural Hazards Engineering Research Infrastructure (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. 

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.
