GSA is hosting this late-breaking session on the geoscientific and societal aspects of this year's record-breaking hurricane events in the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico. Panel discussions focus on topics such as real-time and other situational awareness tools (e.g., pre- and post-storm lidar surveys), effects on infrastructure (lifeline and critical resources), and human/societal factors (warning and risk communication, evacuation, and direct/indirect impacts). Panels are noted below with plenty of time for discussion. No abstracts involved.
