Engineering With Nature to Face Down Hurricane Hazards

Written by: Krystyna Powell, Safra Altman and James Marshall Shepherd

Natural and nature-based features offer promise for storm-related disaster risk reduction and flood mitigation, as long as researchers can adequately monitor and study them.

In this article researchers from the Network for Engineering With Nature (N-EWN) describe workshop findings on coastal disaster monitoring and the role of natural and nature-based features. Read the full article.
