Hazard Mitigation and Coastal Resilience 

Date: April 4, 2024
Time: 1:00 - 2:30 PM ET | 10:00 - 11:30 AM PT
Location: Zoom - Reserve Your Spot

Description: Join the discussion with industry experts on the state of the marketplace, exploring opportunities for industry growth, and a Q&A session for Phase 1 Awardees. This webinar will focus on Hazard Mitigation and Coastal Resilience. To facilitate climate resilience, coastal communities require accurate wind and water level predictions to prepare for and mitigate beach erosion, coastal flooding, and prevent loss of human life. Accurate wind-wave forecasting in enclosed or semi-enclosed basins, nearshore coastal areas, islands, and estuaries require high resolutions observations and modeling at a regional scale. These regional scale observations and model products are currently not available to vulnerable coastal communities nationwide; therefor, it is not possible to accurately predict the magnitude or extent of coastal flooding during episodic storms, King tides, and other wind and wave driven events. 

Speakers include:

  • Tosca Lichtenheld, Government Business Development Lead, Sofar Ocean
  • Megan Hart, Global Head of Analytics and Collaborations, Aon
  • Mary Conley, Southeast Marine Conservation Director, The Nature Conservancy 
  • Russell Koff, Infrastructure Funding & Grants Lead, Jacobs
