Hatfield Science on Tap

The next Hatfield Science on Tap will be held Wed., March 16 at 6:00 pm and features Peter Ruggiero. Ruggiero is the director of The Cascadia Coastlines and Peoples Hazards Research Hub (Cascadia CoPes Hub) and a professor in Oregon State University’s College of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences.

The talk is entitled, “How do Cascadia coastal communities increase their resilience to coastal hazards?” and covers risks to Pacific Northwest coastal communities, including earthquakes, tsunamis, sea-level rise, landslides, erosion, and increased precipitation.

These Cascadia communities stretch from Cape Mendocino, California, through Oregon and Washington to Vancouver Island, Canada. They are calling for a coordinated research agenda among universities, governmental agencies, NGOs, and others to help them achieve resilience to these coastal hazards. Ruggerio will discuss how Cascadia CoPes Hub is addressing this call to increase coastal communities’ ability to adapt and respond to these hazards.

The public is invited to this free, online talk. Below is the link information. In addition, Science on Tap archives are available on this YouTube playlist.

If you have any questions, please contact the event organizer, Cinamon Moffett, Hatfield Marine Science Center Research Program Manager, at cinamon.moffett@oregonstate.edu or 541-867-0126.
