For the InstructorThese student materials complement the Coastal Processes, Hazards and Society Instructor Materials. If you would like your students to have access to the student materials, we suggest you either point them at the Student Version which omits the framing pages with information designed for faculty (and this box). Or you can download these pages in several formats that you can include in your course website or local Learning Managment System.

Three Dimensions of Vulnerability
In this activity, you will use the three dimensions of vulnerability that you learned about in this module – exposure, sensitivity, and adaptive capacity – to assess and compare the vulnerability of residents in three coastal U.S. counties to hurricane winds and storm surge. As discussed earlier, each of these dimensions of vulnerability can have many components, with the exact components varying depending on the system being studied.
All of the instructions are provided in the worksheet for your convenience. They are also available on the pages that follow in this section.
