Sandy, one year later: A free webinar Oct. 29, 2013

 Union of Concerned Scientists, Oct. 12, 2013

Tuesday, October 29, 8:30am-4:30pm | Monmouth University, West Long Branch, NJ or via free webinar

Superstorm Sandy flooded cities and changed coastlines, causing $75 billion in damage and making it the second-costliest extreme weather event in U.S. history.
But the consequences would have been far worse without modern science. As we brace for more damaging storms, we must: improve prediction, response and recovery; better integrate science in risk assessments; create more resilient infrastructure; and ensure that communities can access adequate informationto make good planning decisions that benefit all community members.
One year after Superstorm Sandy made landfall, UCS is holding a full-day forum to discuss how the application of scientific information can make communities more resilient and help the region plan for the future. Participants can attend either in person or via webcast. The event is part of the Lewis M. Branscomb Forum series. 
Presented by the Union of Concerned Scientists, Monmouth University New Jersey Future, and the New Jersey Recovery Fund
Morning Session: 9:00-12:15
