AGI seeks stories from emergency managers regarding how science has helped address flooding in communities

from IAEM

The American Geophysical Union (AGU) is dedicated to supporting discovery in the Earth and space sciences for the benefit of humanity. The Public Affairs team at AGU is writing a report to demonstrate the value of federal science funding through stories of science empowering American communities to prepare for, respond to, and mitigate flooding and related extreme weather events. We are specifically seeking stories of how science has helped emergency managers address flooding in their communities. For example, stories relating to streamgages, elevation mapping, or nature-based flood mitigation (wetland/floodplain restoration, reef installation/restoration, etc.). We are particularly interested in stories from the states of Texas, Florida, Oklahoma, Illinois, Mississippi, Kansas, New York, California, Pennsylvania, and Alabama, and from rural communities or other underserved communities, and stories that can put a quantifiable value to the scientific intervention. If you are able to help, please contact Allison Truhlar, Research Fellow, or Caitlin Bergstrom, Policy Analyst, at sciencepolicy@agu.org. more
