1pm ET

Dr. Carrie Garrison-Laney will talk about her recent trip to areas of Japan destroyed by the Tohoku earthquake tsunami in 2011, and the ongoing recovery and reconstruction. Insights gained from this major disaster can reduce future disaster losses (which is the meaning of the Japanese word "bosai"). These lessons in resilience can be applied to coastal areas of the U.S. through continued education, planning, and preparation for a tsunami disaster, and are critical to Washington Sea Grant's coastal resilience efforts.
