Center for Hazards and Risk Research, Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, Columbia University
Data Center Description
Columbia University's physical and social scientists are undertaking a new research program in disasters and risk management motivated by a clear and compelling need to reduce the catastrophic impacts on society from natural and human-induced hazards. The Center for Hazards and Risk Research (CHRR) draws on Columbia's acknowledged expertise in Earth and environmental sciences, engineering, social sciences, public policy, public health and business.
Their mission is to advance the predictive science of natural and environmental hazards and the integration of science with hazard risk assessment and risk management.
