Communicating Hazard Information in the Modern Environment (CHIME)

With advances in scientific predictions, risk communication, and communication technology, hazard preparedness and warning response are changing rapidly. This project — funded through the National Science Foundation Hazards SEES (Science, Engineering, and Education for Sustainability) program — aims to reduce harm from hurricanes and other hazards, alleviate social vulnerability, and enhance resilience by improving hazardous weather risk communication and response in the modern information environment. This includes building understanding of how evolving weather forecasts and warnings interact with societal information flow and decisions as a hurricane approaches and arrives.
