Dwayne Tannant | DRRN Research Seminar [online only]
March 15, 2023, 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm
Mitigation of Damage to Homes from Post-Wildfire Debris Flows
Network member Dwayne Tannant
Professor, School of Engineering
Join us for a presentation on mitigating damage to homes caused by post-wildfire debris flows. See examples of debris floods triggered by rainfall after wildfires have damaged small watersheds. Discover practical techniques to design and construct berms and ditches to protect homes from small localized disasters. Most examples will come from First Nations communities in south-central BC.
4:00 - 5:30 PM | Wednesday, March 15
[Note: This seminar will start 30 minutes later than usual.]
The idea for this year's seminar series is to encourage DRRN members to share their work and how it relates to the network. In this spirit, members will consider how to share their work accessibly to a transdisciplinary audience with a shared interest in disaster research. This will be a great chance to learn what other members are up to, while communicating our very different forms of knowledge to a diverse academic audience.
The seminars will be 1-1.5 hours, with talks lasting ~40 minutes, leaving plenty of time for Q & A and discussion. While most seminars are held in a hybrid format, please not that this event is online-only.
