You are a city planner of a town that has been affected by a particular geohazard. The mayor knows you are something of an expert in natural hazards and has asked that you give a brief report at the town meeting to explain the hazard to the townspeople.
Now that you know your category of hazard, it is up to you to pick your town. Your town can be anywhere around the world but must have suffered (or be suffering) from a specific, easily researched event of your choosing (ex: earthquake — San Francisco in 1906; landslide — La Conchita 2005).
Deliverable: Due Saturday, July 11 by 11:59pm
Compose a two-page report to deliver to your city council on your chosen geohazard. This is an individual project, not a group assignment. Your paper will describe how the specific event affected your town, region, or more, and what citizens and the scientific community can study/monitor/do/build/learn to make your town more resilient when facing future disasters. Your report should give a brief but thorough background to an audience of interested townspeople with a high school education. Your report can be double-spaced but cannot exceed the page limit.
Each report must address the following (you do not need to strictly adhere to this order):
Describe the event — What, when, where, why.
Were there casualties?
What about specific losses you can name (bridges collapsed, neighborhoods in lava)?
Hazard background: Explain the geohazard in general. Basic questions to be answered include but are not limited to:
Why and where does the hazard tend to occur?
What determines the severity of the hazard?
What locations are at risk?
Ideas for mitigation, prevention, awareness, and safety, and suggestions for further scientific inquiry.
References to reliable sources for ALL information. Cite these sources throughout your paper using any format you choose (footnotes, parenthetical citations, etc) and list the sources in a References section. Your references section does not count against the page/word limit. Papers without proper citation and references will not be graded.
