Natural Hazards and Risk Communication part of Integrate:Workshops:Systems, Society, Sustainability and the Geosciences:Courses
This course will provide an introduction to the science behind natural hazards, the risks associated with these hazards, and effective methods of communicating those risks to a variety of audiences. Recent research has shown that relaying scientific knowledge alone to potentially vulnerable populations does not have a significant impact on increasing their resilience to those hazards. Therefore, it is increasingly important for scientists to become translators of complex technical information for a variety of audiences.
