Join us for a groundbreaking webinar on climate change adaptation, with a specific focus on combating extreme flooding. Our distinguished speakers will illuminate the path towards a resilient future. First up is a presentation by a leading expert from Scripps at UC San Diego, delving into cutting-edge advancements in quantitative precipitation information and X-band radar technology. Explore the frontier of weather prediction, offering unparalleled insights into extreme weather events. Next, the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) takes the virtual stage to discuss revolutionary designs for enhancing the Guadalupe and Pajaro Rivers. Uncover the power of "engineering with nature" as the Pajaro River undergoes a transformative widening and deepening project, fortifying the levee system against intensified rain events. Our third speaker introduces a unique community-based initiative, where farmers play a pivotal role in flood mitigation. Witness the fusion of engineering with nature and wetland restoration as the community spearheads innovative solutions to combat extreme flooding challenges. Join us for an inspiring exploration of how collaboration, advanced technology, and nature-based engineering are shaping the future of flood resilience. Don't miss out on this opportunity to be at the forefront of change!
