Center for Natural Hazards and Disasters Research

Abbreviation: NHDR
Director: Dr. Baxter E. Vieux

The center's vision is to identify technological solutions that would make society more resilient to natural hazards, thereby reducing or mitigating the disastrous impacts of drought and extreme temperatures on water resources, damaging winds, heavy precipitation, and flooding. If every community could withstand these forces of nature and sustain minimal damage, a safer and more sustainable place to live would result.
