Posted: 10/3/2017 (CSDE in the News)
Affiliate Ann Bostrom, Professor at the Evans School, along with members of the Washington State Emergency Management Division and Joint Centre of Disaster Research at Massey University, organized a Subduction Megaquake and Tsunami Preparedness Workshop that recently took place at UW. The workshop provided an overview of Cascadia Rising and Tangaroa disaster simulation exercises and findings from related reviews, and was attended by academics and researchers, members of local and Washington state governments, and visiting colleagues from New Zealand. The UW M9 research project—a team of experts from a variety of departments and outside organizations working to reduce potentially catastrophic effects of a Cascadia megathrust earthquake on society and the natural environment—provided partial support for the workshop.
