Critical Issues Webinar: “Planning for Coastal Storm and Erosion Hazards”
Coastal hazards are a widespread challenge that cost millions (and sometimes billions) of dollars in the U.S. every year due to property loss, infrastructure damage, and spending on mitigation measures. Reducing risk and responding to coastal hazards is an ongoing challenge that relies on close coordination and cooperation between geoscientists, coastal planners, emergency managers, and communities at all levels. This free AGI Critical Issues webinar will focus on efforts to anticipate, mitigate, and respond to coastal storms, erosion, and associated hazards at the federal, state, and local levels, with a focus on how geoscience informs planning at all levels and examples of coastal hazard planning from the Pacific, Gulf, and Atlantic coasts.

Speakers:
• Maria Honeycutt, Coastal Hazards Specialist, NOAA Office for Coastal Management
• Patrick Barnard, Research Geologist, USGS Pacific Coastal and Marine Science Center
• Jeff Taebel, FAICP, Houston-Galveston Area Council
• Jennifer Kline, Coastal Management Program, Georgia Department of Natural Resources
