Increasing Public Understanding of Risk and Vulnerability to Natural Hazards

Discussion of our research at FIU to reduce the impact of natural hazard events by reducing community vulnerabilities and understanding and managing exposure to hurricanes, including the NSF-NHERI Wall of Wind. The goal is to provide a better public understanding of how changes in exposures and vulnerabilities will determine whether a community experiences an emergency, disaster or catastrophe.
