Please consider contributing to the following AGU session on the broader
impacts of natural hazards research of all flavors.  Do our efforts work?  Is
the impact what we intend?  Note that an author (you) can submit an
additional abstract to a Public Affairs section (this one!) without it
counting against your submission limit.

The abstract submission deadline is August 5.


*PA016: *
*Natural hazards research and the real "broader impacts"*

*Session ID#: 9181*
*Session Description:*
Natural hazards present a unique and natural laboratory for earth science
research, such as geophysics, geochemistry, atmospheric chemistry, geodesy
and remote sensing, to name just a few, all having the potential for direct
societal applications. Yet despite the many improvements in hazard science,
including monitoring, forecasting and understanding hazard triggers,
economic losses and the number of people affected by disasters continues to
rise. Many research proposals require a broader impacts statement that
reflects the potential benefits to society; however, there is a deficit in
the literature demonstrating how these “broader impacts” are realized. This
session seeks to address the interplay between scientific knowledge and
societal awareness, exploring how natural hazards research is (or is not)
integrated into public policy and human behavior. We invite presentations
of case studies that highlight how scientific research results have been
communicated, accepted and/or adapted into local, regional or national
