2005 workshop summaries and abstracts available online
In July 2005, hazards researchers and professionals, including federal, state, and local government officials; representatives from non-profit organizations and private industry; and other interested individuals, convened in Boulder, Colorado, for the Natural Hazards Center’s 30th Annual Hazards Research and Applications Workshop. Participants debated, explored, and shared information on a wide range of issues. This year’s session topics included the 2004 Asian tsunami, social isolation in disaster planning, the effectiveness of land use zoning as a hazard mitigation tool, climate change and unpredictability, innovations in Earth observations, legal issues regarding quarantine, and many, many others.
To share some of the ideas and discussions presented during the workshop, the center publishes brief summaries of each session, abstracts of the research presented, and descriptions of the projects and programs discussed. This is a valuable resource for those who were unable to attend, as well as for those who were. Session summaries, abstracts, and other workshop materials are available online at: www.colorado.edu/hazards/workshop/2005/.
