Coral Gables (May 18, 2012) — Twenty years after Hurricane Andrew, the University of Miami continually seeks to improve the knowledge of the Earth’s geologic, oceanic, and atmospheric systems to provide a scientific basis for managing natural resources and adapting to the impact of natural disasters.
Our experts have studied the storm’s aftermath and published research on many subject areas including: hurricanes and El Nino/La Nina, real-time observations and forecasting, hurricane intensity, air-sea interactions, meteorology and physical oceanography, water quality, and the personal cost in the hurricane’s aftermath. Some of the influential players in re-building the community are still conducting research at the University of Miami on structural damage and how to rebuild destroyed communities in a safe, environmentally-sensitive manner, post- traumatic stress, education about the disaster, and its emotional and physical effects.
The University of Miami is sharing a list of hurricane experts who can speak to the media about this issue. http://blogs.univmiami.net/experts/?cat=980
